About The Artist

Hi there!

Thank you for stopping by my website! I'm Julie Hilboldt, the artist behind Hilboldt Studios. 

Ever since I can remember I've been a bit of an artist...hence the photo below.  Yes, that kid is really me! But I'm willing to bet that drawing didn't even make it on the fridge. Although I always managed to keep art around me, I didn't pursue art full time until 2019. 

I'm from St. Louis and graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in Marketing. I incorporated art into my routine through a Fine Arts Minor and gallery internships, but ultimately obtained a digital marketing job upon graduation. Let's just say it didn't take long for me to realize that the corporate world wasn't for me.  At that point, I was ready to go back to school.

In January of 2019, I began my pursuit for a Master of Fine Arts at Fontbonne University. Studying painting and drawing at Fontbonne has been so rewarding. I have some of the most dedicated professors who not only immensely improved my artistic abilities, but they also provided inspiration through their encouragement and dedication. During the next year, I will continue to progress with my degree and see where it takes me. 

Thanks again for visiting my shop! Your support means so much to me and is very appreciated. If you have any questions about my work, inquiries on commissions, or just want to say hello, please reach out to me in the contact form below!
