Julie Zhu is a renowned artist famous for her works on watercolour painting. Her practice stemmed from one that is deeply rooted in the essence of traditional watercolour painting. She uses techniques and intricate detailing in the majority of her art-making methodology for the last 20 years of her practice. She inclines to the pursuit of love, imaginary fields of elation, and the euphoria of all things flora and fauna.

Her famous works include but are limited to Drunken Dream, Venice, Marriage, and many more. Her works would entice art lovers who love traditional Chinese auspicious symbols of wealth and good fortunes such as the goldfish, mountains, and the lotus. Many aspects of the traditional Chinese art style reflected the vibe and aesthetic of the artwork, from the brush strokes to the depth of the ink used. Her art holds many deep meanings from Chinese sayings and folklore of blessings and fortune. One can say, Julie Zhu is one of the best traditional Chinese art style artists of our time. Her works are highly sought after by many art collectors, enthusiasts and people looking to liven up their homes with aspects of wealth and good fortune by placing her artworks in their homes.
