Julie Wear is an internationally renowned artist who is regarded as the world's premiere painter of Thoroughbred Racehorses. For three decades, Ms. Wear has traveled extensively domestically and abroad to study her subjects in preparation for commissioned paintings on canvas. Her famed equestrian portraits hang in prestigious private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Japan. They are in the Royal Collections of Queen Elizabeth II and the ruling family of Dubai. Although the original paintings are privately comissioned and are therefore rarely seen in public, Wear's work has been featured in numerous publications for the world of Thoroughbreds.
Wear has now expanded her career to include founding a fine china tableware company, Julie Wear Designs LLC. Her company offers a beautiful collection of impeccably designed porcelain tableware. With a master's eye for color and design, the same devotion to skilled artistry, graceful lines and the intuitive sense of color seen in her original paintings were hallmarks for creating this extraordinary tableware collection that simply exudes classic beauty, high style and originality.
"Whether I am painting a
champion racehorse or designing
a new tableware pattern,
it is absolutely my passion!" says Wear.
True to her work ethic, Wear oversees every step of production to insure the collection meets the highest possible artistic and design standards. Each piece in every pattern was personally designed, laid out,
drawn and painted by Julie Wear
expressly for this fine china collection.
