In 2004 she received her B.F.A. from the Ai of Miami and began her career as a designer. Her passion remained deeply routed in fine art. In 2015 Julie’s art was exhibited by The Fearless Artist gallery in Wynwood during Art Basel week in Miami. In 2016 her illustrations debuted on Ocean Goddess Apparel, a brand of beach wear exclusively for women. Julie Lehite has also collaborated with the brand Bucketfeet. Her hand painted illustration titled, “Senses” is now a featured design for the worldly known brand.
Julie’s favorite mediums are ink and gouache on paper. She tends to keep her work playful and seductively impelling in hopes to make her audience become reacquainted with their genuine selves. Her art is strongly influence by the vibrant lifestyle of South Florida. Her work explores the sea and all it’s creatures with a feminine touch. Julie strongly believes with art anything is possible, even the possibility of inspiring awareness to help protect our oceans.
