Jules really knows how to capture the heart and essence of a woman. I love all the details she includes, and how she uses color to convey emotion. I love how realistic they are in terms of body proportion as well, it feels authentic and real and beautiful.
Jules just has a way of capturing every part of you with such care and sensitivity. I was honored to be a Muse.

Julia had a very distinct "knowing" of what my soul was calling forth.
I do believe that Julia is gifted in knowing intuitively what my soul needs most. I gave her 2 options to draw and she came up with something that is completely aligned with me.
I am receiving continuous angelic confirmation and guidance that creativity is my strength and the place where I am creating my greatest moments of nourishment and sense of safety.

Julia's work is something else. In addition to creating beautiful drawn portraits of women around the world, she also manages to perform distant reiki for those who choose to have their portraits done.
It is a perfect way to rejuvenate the mind and listen to the soul.
Brooke Hunter, Journalist, Aussie in London UK
When I first saw her, it was like getting a hug from my higher self. All goosebumpy and amazed! I definitely felt an awakening of energies. It felt like Northern Lights swirling all around me. Beautiful. Happy. Content. She's still on my computer desktop!
Sharon Harangozo, Canada
I have been blessed to have two portraits created by Julia and have been blown away by both of them. She captures a part of me that I didn’t think was visible and that is an incredible gift. The combination of healing and art is so powerful and Julia is helping so many people with her magical talent.
Thank you honey for shining so brightly.

After seeing my muse mantra and the accuracy of the image, even down to the clothing (I was wearing a t-shirt with a heart on it the day my mantra appeared - and you had drawn me wearing a top with hearts on it!) there is no doubt that you are a very gifted and talented lady. It makes me feel so happy and energised to see the image.
Sarah Bradshaw, Evoke Holistic Therapy, UK
"Without ever having met me, you have this amazing ability to blur the line between the physical and non-physical. It's as if you infuse more of the soul into the image, making the person's essence visible to the eye. I personally feel as if I had spilled myself onto your page and with your artistic tools, you shaped my scrambledness, softening the edges, showing a version of me that feels more like the person I am on the inside. To have it infused with blessings and healings, is incredible." Renee, USA
My first thought was 'she's so beautiful', then I thought "Wow - She is ME!'
She's so happy and at peace with just being - and makes me smile
I'm honoured that you took the time to capture what is essentially my essence.
You are incredibly talented and have a unique gift to share.
Fay Chapple, Business Strategist and Success Coach for women entrepreneurs, Canada
I was featured as one of Julia's Muse Mantras for The Holiday Muse. This was to be the first Christmas since my husband killed himself in August and I am so glad I did. It really helped me to remember that I am strong and that there are so many people out there who have my back and are there to support me. It made a difficult time easier and gave me things to do to positively and improve my mindset which helped both me and my children, so thank you so much Julia.
Christine McAuliffe, Australia
Julia is such a talented artist, she captured the essence of my soul perfectly and with grace. It's like she saw the feelings that want to come forth and she captured them. After looking at my muse image, I felt honoured and divine. Thank you again Julia!'

The process for requesting a Muse Mantra is introspective and expansive – It invites you to be kind with yourself and that’s not easy for many of us. It also feels a little like handing over your heart. You know implicitly that Julia will handle it with care and return it to you stronger than it was before. I haven’t found too many artists who have that kind of exquisite compassion for their subjects who also happen to be their patrons.
Michelle Roebuck Evolving Perspective, USA
Julia has a way of not just seeing but drawing the beauty from each one of her muses. Each muse is drawn from a place of great love that infuses her work. You only have to look at all of her muses to feel that.
I have a tendency to be hard on myself, to focus on my flaws over my beauty and goodness. To look at my Muse Mantra and to see myself through her eyes is healing and uplifting: there are no flaws, I am beautiful as I am and the love in that picture strengthens and radiates my mantra…that I carry inside me everything I seek. Julia’s Muse Mantra is a truly unique offering and blessing to the world and I am so grateful to have been mused by her.”
Kym Wilson, Writer, Pilgrim, Coach Australia
I have her in my studio, where I can see her at a glance. She reminds me to reach for everything because when we imagine, anything is possible. She lifts me up when I am feeling uninspired. And she touches my heart, because you created her for me! I love her!!
Amie Starchuk, Textile Artist, Dubai
Your work is transformational, whimsical, yet gentle. There is Grace in these lovely Portraits. When I see all of them together, it's like stepping into a room full of Light Filled women. Aaahhh.
