Artist Obsession : Julie Alpert

Black Pattern Watercolor #8, 2013. Watercolor, ink and permanent marker on paper. 10″ x 7.5″

I recently discovered Julie Alpert’s vibrant installation pieces and instantly fell in love with them. Each segment of color reminds me of a patch of a vintage quilt. I’m really drawn to the way she weaves the intricate patterns together to create depth, it almost feels like they are popping off the page. Although they are all about postcard size, they consume the space beautifully.

  1. I really like the 2nd one – could be so pretty on a gallery wall. I can’t wait to have walls for you to decorate :)
