Julianna O’Hara

Painting What I Love

Julianna O’Hara was born in Florida, moved to South Carolina when she was a teenager and, after graduating college, moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career. She started oil painting at the ripe young age of twelve and has been exploring her artistic pursuits her whole life. She studied art at UCLA, USC, Santa Monica College, and Brentwood Art Center in Santa Monica, California.

Julianna currently resides near Monterey, California, and is affiliated with various art organizations – she paints almost daily and works almost exclusively from life – she only paints what she loves – she has to be moved in some way to put paint to canvas and luckily, many things move her. Although she has worked in other mediums such as acrylic, watercolor, gouache and “mixed”, she is most passionate about oil painting. Lately, she is particularly interested in capturing the beauty of interior still life scenes composed of family heirlooms and flowers from her garden. She is willing to spend as much as three weeks designing a still life set up. Her concentration right now is to excel as a fine Intimist artist and she is enjoying the exploration of interior analogous scenes. Julianna has paintings in private collections in the US, UK, Asia, Australia and Germany.

Julianna’s paintings are easily recognizable for their vibrancy of color, texture and expressiveness of brushstrokes.
