She creates illustrations for newspapers, magazines and books. Her personal sketchbook work demands a closer look as many of her pieces are painted directly into books where the text is visible in varying patches through different opacities of paint. Julianna uses the blocks of text and diagrams in these books alternately as texture under her paint and as part of the composition itself, such as in A Blue Heron.
