Welcome to my new blog! My name is Juli Engelgau. I am a California-based artist, I have spent the last decade cultivating a name and a niche for my talents in the decorative arts and I am pleased to announce the debut of Luxe Tapestry, refreshing and innovative new custom line of one of a kind, hand-painted canvas tapestry wall art. I am a self-taught artist, I began my artistic journey in my home based studio in Austin, Texas where I experimented with mixed media: faux-painting, gilding and other leafing techniques intricately patterned on large scale canvas. Since my humble self-made beginnings, I have been honored to be featured on HGTV's show "Crafters Coast to Coast". Most recently my works can be seen on HGTV's "Donna Decorates Dallas". A decorating visionary with a knack for turning any ordinary space into a "WOW" factor. I hope you enjoy viewing my inspirational photos and ideas.
