Artist Name – Julie Meridian
Julie Meridian is drawn to the hidden natures of things and the ways context can shift perception and behavior. She explores these through both art and design, seeking out the small truths whose presence can inspire serendipitous connections. Through painting and illustration she captures what is unique – to remix it or to hold it in isolation to gain fresh perspective. She has recently exhibited paintings at Works/San José, the Triton Museum, and University Art, and is an award-winning editorial cartoonist.
Much of her work is inspired through her observational skill built up from her career in Experience Design. She is best known as the lead designer for Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and LinkedIn. She is currently consulting through her business, Make It Legit. She has a B.S. in Computer Science and a minor in Studio Art from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
A resident of San José for over a decade, she is continually inspired by the diversity and the spirit of innovation of the South Bay.
