Artist CV

Julie deBoer is primarily a self-taught artist, who’s childhood was saturated with art, thanks to her mother, seasoned artist – Ursula Pagenkopf. Julie first picked-up a paintbrush in 2010, leaving behind her love of photo realist drawing for her new passion in paint. She quickly found success as her bold, large and whimsical paintings found popularity among collectors and galleries. Collectors of Julie’s work are found throughout North America and as far as Australia and the UK.

Julie is also an entrepreneur and business owner of a global artists-supporting-artists company that connects aspiring, emerging, and professional artists with Master Artists from around the globe. She is building and strengthening a culture of connection, mentorship, training and community in the global art industry. She’s an avid believer that “a rising tide floats all boats” and that artists can find growth and success faster when working together in supportive community. Learn more at LevellingUp.
