Julia studied art at the Maryland Institute College of Art and earned a degree in landscape architecture from Virginia Tech. Julia started Red Bird Ink, an art and design studio in Atlanta, after she had designed wedding invitations for friends and was asked to do more. At the studio, Julia creates original and limited-edition art using a variety of methods including painting, photography, pen and ink and printmaking. She then applies that artwork to the designs for letterpress stationery, including wedding invitations, boxed stationery sets, greetings and cards.
Julia’s STUDIO collection is modern, fun and graphic – bright red blossom notes with matching red envelopes, as well as a set of contemporary spectacle frames, foil stamped on correspondence cards and printed on sticky pads.
