Where did I find Julia Lillard? I’m losing track of how I find these artists, but maybe somewhere in Pinterest-land. Here I am on Pinterest if you want to follow along.
So, Julia. Her work is completely surreal collages and I find them dark and hilarious and wonderful. Even though she answered some of my interview questions, I still find her as mysterious as her art- which is kind of satisfying.
Here are her answers- then scroll down to see where you can see more of her artwork.
Were your parents instrumental in you pursuing art-making?
No way, no how.
What is your typical day?

What makes you weird?
What doesn’t make me weird? I feel like I’m on the verge of some huge answer, but I don’t know what the question is.
What do you hate about being an artist?
Marketing and having to charge for my art.
What are you influenced by? People, places, or things. Just a list – you don’t need to go into detail unless you want to.
My thoughts, places, things, color, images, music, everything.
What motivates you to keep working?
I don’t know. I just have to.
Unrelated to art, but very important: Do you have any pets? What is your favorite beverage? What is your favorite article of clothing?

Last question. Finish the sentence: Art Makes People…
