CFA Featured Artwork


Community Foundation of Acadiana is proud to feature the beautiful paintings of artist, Julie Breaux. A native of Lafayette, Julie draws inspiration from the South Louisiana culture. She has been painting for 13 years and thinks of herself as a colorist most of all. Julie is very passionate about painting. In her own words, "There’s nothing like getting lost and freeing your mind while painting, then afterwards to hear the viewer really admire the piece is so rewarding!”

Julie’s love for painting was ignited with her interest in collecting original art after building a new home. She was first inspired by Jackson Pollock, and was intrigued by his use of color and technique. After experimenting with different mediums, Julie found her niche in acrylic painting. Her artwork is a unique collaboration of florals, still lifes and streetscapes with an occasional abstract in-between. Julie’s appreciation for color and composition moves her to create wonderfully vibrant pieces. Julie uses bright, bold colors with a brush and pallet knife for texture. This combination always makes an interesting statement, often representing light in unexpected ways. Julie’s artwork not only lifts spirits, but has also gained fast notoriety throughout the community. Outside of Lafayette, Julie is represented by Ariodante Art Gallery in New Orleans. Her work has been published in magazines and newspapers, and can be seen throughout Lafayette and New Orleans as well as in private collections both nationally and internationally. 

Julie resides in Lafayette, Louisiana with her husband Frank and two children, Danielle and Elliot.
