Get to Know
Hello! My name is Julie Behm and I am the artist behind Quirky Dame Designs. You can call me Julie, Jewels or even Quirky. :) I love laughter, color and whimsical things. I'm a bookworm and always have my Kindle, as well as my sketchpad and iPhone, with me wherever I go. Art is my therapy and brings me great joy.
Since childhood, two of my greatest joys have been my art and imagination. I would spend hours, crayon in hand, creating the people and worlds that inhabited my imagination, seeing them come to life on the pages before me. I strive to do that very same thing now with a paintbrush and canvas. I use both oils and acrylics to create images that are colorful, fun, and whimsical, often with a spark of humor or quirkiness.
I took my first art class as a child and have continued to pursue lessons throughout my life, including classes while I attended college. I have continued to educate myself by taking workshops with local artists. I love learning and am always seeking to go beyond my best with each piece I create.
I have a Zazzle shop where you can buy various products featuring my paintings such as note cards, mugs, magnets, tote bags and so much more. I add new products every week. You can find it at http://www.zazzle.com/quirkydame.

They are recycled cigarette vending machines that vend miniature pieces of art the size of a pack of cigarettes. They have over 90 machines located in the US and several other countries. I use only quality products for my paintings, including professional artist paints and I carefully package each painting to minimize the chances of damage during the shipping process. I do hope that you enjoy visiting my shop and please come back again, as I will be updating it with new paintings and products as they are complete. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I would love to hear from you! I also welcome custom requests.
