Julianne Haness of J Marie Creates is a freelance illustrator and surface pattern designer based just outside of Los Angeles. A portrait artist and muralist of over 20 years, she began her surface pattern design journey in 2020 when quarantine forced everyone to find a new hobby. A Southern California native, she entertains a deep love for vintage colors, beachy florals and quirky animals. She enjoys creating artwork that can be a bit classy, a bit cute and also a bit weird. Her kids are her greatest critics and provide inspiration in each and every piece.
