Juliana Burrell was born in South America, where she lived until the age of 17. After completing multiple degrees at Indiana University, she joined a professional circus troupe as an aerialist and toured nationally for four years. Next, Juliana returned to Indiana and began work as an artist and art educator, currently teaching art to first through fifth graders at Centerton and Smith elementary schools in Martinsville.
Says Juliana: " I am very interested in human relationships and emotions. Large canvas and acrylic paintings with bold lines, vivid colors, and defined shapes are the hallmark of my style. My diverse cultural background is a constant source of inspiration, from my early experiences in Brazil, to the enchantment of circus life."

The BloomingArts Series exists to support and promote emerging artists, highlight community organizations, and provide artists in neighboring counties a place to show their work in Bloomington. We use the café spaces at our East 3rd Street, West 6th Street, and Kirkwood locations to feature new art each month. To learn more, contact Member Services Coordinator Jean Kautt.
