The Creative Mind of Julia Rothman

As a big fan of Julia Rothman's work as an illustrator, I was thrilled to see that some of her illustrations are now available as wallpaper.

Julia Rothman is an amazing illustrator and designer. Her work is  bold, whimsical and hand-crafted. Her style is refreshing and the color combinations are exquisite. She grew up on a small island in the Bronx called City Island.

When Julia is not reading books, drinking milkshakes, walking her terrier Rudy, or cozying up with her husband Matt, or simply hanging out with friends, she works from her studio in Brooklyn, NY creating her signature patterns.

As a student, Julia recalls when an art teacher once said to her, "It seems like all you want to do is have fun." And why not? Especially when working on something fun is what makes you happy every day.

Each roll of wallpaper is designed in Brooklyn, NY and screen printed in Chicago, IL on coated paper manufactured in the USA. This high quality paper is designed to be extremely durable and is fade resistant. The traditional printing technique creates a hand painted feel.

Asisde from her wallpaper, Julia has a company called Also.  Also creates websites for small independent companies. They have been featured in several books and magazines, and most recently won the prestigious Young Guns Award from the Art Director's Club.
