About

I’m Julia Y, the creator of the MicroCosmic Oracle. My unique art style, combining collaged fabric, acrylic paint, embroidery floss, and nails, is something I’ve refined over nearly 2 decades of art study and practice. It allows me to create one-of-a-kind 3-D pieces inspired by everything from folklore and herbalism to science and geometry.

I love “witchy” art and design and want to bring beautiful, high-quality work to that space. I’m so excited about my MicroCosmic Oracle deck; I learned a lot about myself through its creation and my hope is that anyone who picks it up will learn about astrology, interconnectedness, and their own spirit.

You can learn more about my process here. And if you’re interested in seeing more of my art, I invite you to check out “All Illustrations” to explore my work and the inspirations behind the pieces!
