I strive to live my life as authentically as possible. Speaking and acting upon my truth are at the core of who I am. I reject social constructs that don’t serve me and I want to encourage others to do the same. You do YOU and I will always support others in their own paths. Taking the road less traveled has served me well and brought much joy to my life.
By creating and sharing my art, and my experiences with others, I hope to motivate and inspire you to be brave enough to forge your own path and let go of the outside noise that hinders you from being yourself. Embrace the messy parts of yourself, stop living for tomorrow and realize that ‘where you are right now is exactly where you are supposed to be.’ -Levi Felix
This radical self-acceptance and self-love have fueled what the Julie Ahmad Contemporary Art brand has evolved into, as have I.
Through my artistic efforts, I strive to empower women in every avenue of life through intersectional feminism by supporting female-centric charities throughout the year with both in-kind and monetary donations. With the help of my patrons, I hope to be able to commit more to the charities I am passionate about such as St. Louis House, Planned Parenthood and Austin Women in Technology.
I uphold myself to the highest level of service so that your experience is absolutely top-notch. I hope that every time you look at the piece in your home, you are reminded of the care and heart that I not only put into the painting, but in each of our encounters.
Let the artwork that I create be a symbol of empowerment and willingness to be vulnerable. Let the artwork remind you of how valuable YOU are. Let the artwork be a mantra personal to you.
