About Me

Julie Paprika is an online shop for Julie Paschkis.  I am a painter, a textile designer, an illustrator of many children's book and an author of some. Most of my work tells stories, and all of it is filled with pattern and color. I don't care much about the boundaries between high and low art, finding equal joy in creating a painting for a greeting card, a children's book or fine art. Good work is good in any genre.

You can see more of my work at www.juliepaschkis.com

Julie Paprika is a way to make my paintings accessible to more people.The paintings here were created over many years. Some were originally fine art and some were originally illustrations. I love textiles, particularly scarves so I decided to make some of those too.

Why paprika? The name Paschkis can be difficult to remember. Paprika sounds similar. Plus, paprika is beautiful, red and tasty. 

Julie Paprika was started together with Julan Chu.  Julan is currently traveling the world, so Julie Paprika is now a solo enterprise.

Thank you for coming by.
