About Julia Contacessi

After graduating from Pratt Institute, I moved from Brooklyn, New York to Norwalk, Connecticut where I currently live with her husband, Mario, and little guy, Neo. I love painting, photography and all things design. Sprinkle in the occasional 5 mile run and feisty conversations across the family dinner table on Sunday evenings and you have a good view of things in my world.

Congratulations on your big second place win! I love your work-- tried so very hard to convince my husband that your escaping Elba print was what we needed in our dining room, but no dice yet haha!! Happy for you!

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on Playful! The original was only about 9x12. For perspective, some of the wider marks were done with an old credit card :) Congrats again to you - Blissful Escape is absolute perfection and I'm so glad it was included in both groups of Editor's picks - they obviously really loved it!!! I'm such a huge fan of your work :)
