Julie Sobolewski / Artist / Oceanside
Julie Sobolewski uses the vibrant colors and rich textures of stained glass adhered to recycled surfboards to bring her visions of ocean life alive. She creates unique collectibles including golden-haired mythical mermaids, majestic sea turtles and stunning tropical ocean panoramas in her art studio in Oceanside, California.
“I find well used surfboards that have spent their years immersed in the ocean’s energy a very exciting medium to use.”
Using stained glass and her own sense of whimsy, Sobolewski’s work gives us not only insights into how different mediums like surfboards can be artistically reused, but also embody a spirited vision that expresses the transformative beauty, energy, and harmony inherent in the sea.
