Hello my name is Julie Okahara. I love to draw, paint, and take pictures with my toy cameras. This page is all about my art and gives a little look into my life as a Japanese artist living in America. Enjoy!


I was born in Osaka, Japan. After graduating from Osaka Industrial Arts High School, I started my career as a graphic designer. Wanting to further my studies in studio art, I came to California in 2005. Since then my mediums have expanded into acrylic painting, ink drawing, sewing, and plaster and wooden sculpting.
