Meet Julia Ross of Art Gallery Pure in North Dallas

Today we’d like to introduce you to Julia Ross.

Julia, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Born to a family of artists, painters, poets and sculptors, my happiest memories involve creative works of art.

Inspired to build a career in the arts, I studied Fine Arts at The University of Texas, ventured into advertising to build digital brands online. I ran a traditional advertising agency in my 20’s, then began digital advertising agency in my 30’s which I still manage a marketing consulting practice for.

Today, I spend most days finding ways to give back through works of art.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Artists are in a unique position. Their work is their product. Marketing is not necessarily an innate skill set of a creative, but those who are able to both create and market will stand out in a crowd. My challenges have been associated with learning that it is acceptable to market myself.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Art Gallery Pure – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
GalleryPure art exhibits and events each support a cause and gallery associated artists enjoy giving back.

A guest speaker for The University of Texas, Entrepreneurial Advertising and Business Advertising, I have met bright young minds entering the workforce, looking for creative positions, and have many interns with our company. I mentor artists, students, entrepreneurs and business owners, providing them with insight and business models needed to promote their businesses.

I have created companies, taught others how to create and grow and through those experiences, I have the opportunity to grow myself. I am an artist and I am proud to create works of art that do more than just hang on a wall – I am Inspired to create works of art that give back for social good.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Each art series is created for the purpose of inspiring others and providing a channel for the education of causes and to give back for social good. I am working on three series of paintings and sculptures:
-The OCEANS Series assists Ocean Conservancy to conserve the oceans.
-Off the Grid features travel experiences – away from the life of the ever-present.
-Full Transparency features images of silence through transparent colors to display a calm during the rush.

    I have had the privilege of seeing the actual paintings done by this artist and I must say I am very impressed. Along with the viewing of her work I also had the privilege of meeting her. As well as being a very passionate and skilled artist, she is also a very delightful person.
