Jules Giancola is a Toronto/GTA-based visual artist, educator and graphic designer. She studied at York University, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (BFA) in Visual Arts and a Bachelor of Education (BEd). She has a Graphic Design for Print & Web post-grad certificate from Humber College. Her work explores the female form, femininity and the meditative process of art making itself. 

When creating her ink illustrations,  Jules uses india ink pens and works intuitively to create repetitive configurations in the design of her work. Her mainly monochromatic works allow the emphasis to be placed on visual structure and the precision involved in their creation. She enjoys both observing and creating patterns throughout her work. The mandalas Jules create
s reflect the meditative process of art making, and being in flow as apart of the creative process. 
 The intricate
 details and repetitive patterns in each work encompass the act of creation as a form of meditation. Jules enjoys finding inspiration from observing patterns in my daily life. She is particularly
 inspired by fractals in nature, especially the inner parts of flowers.

Jules' body of work includes wearable artwork created on white leather shoes. Many of these pieces are commissions where Jules collaborates with the wearer to make each pair a unique reflection of the individual. Similar to a tattoo sleeve, this form of wearable art is both meaningful and unique.
