We chat to colour lover and talented artist Julia aka @summer_svenson - take a sneak peek inside her home, and find out how she's styling her kids rooms, plus get your rainbow fix with her incredible art!
Your artwork is so incredible, it’s like you’ve been doing this for decades, but in fact you started your career in an entirely different space. Can you tell us a bit about your “origin story”?
I have always loved painting – somewhere along the way I sidestepped into my previous career. This started with a late night uni job, manually dubbing VHS tapes at Channel 9, then shifting into work as a Researcher and Associate Producer in Network Television.
This later role involved sourcing talent, scouting locations and coming up with story ideas. As it often involved travel, it was a really fun way to spend my 20s into my 30s.
After work I still felt the pull to spend spare time painting, sewing and crafting, just for fun. If I wasn’t making something at any given time, I was usually thinking about what I was about to start making!
