Juliana Lima

1979 , Brazil

Juliana Lima (b. 1979) was born and raised in Campinas, Brazil but has spent a large part of her adult life traveling the world, working in fashion, design and art, eventually settling in Singapore. Driven by creative expression, Juliana is a professional fine jewellery designer and self-taught painter and artist. Using media ranging from sand, glass, metals, colour pour to resin, Lima’s work are an enchanting interaction between the natural and the man-made. The complex layering and texture of each piece reveals a teeming, vibrant world in constant state of motion governed by Lima’s intuition and dexterity. 

Artist Statement

“Home is that place and moment you are your true self. It’s the feeling of belonging, a sense of acceptance and identity. Where you can be your authentic self. My journey as an artist started a few years ago in Singapore and it gave me back the sense of belonging I had lost. Life is always changing who we are and I express these changes through my art which reveals a sense of life in constant state of motion, but always feels centred and whole. My piece, Contemplation, is a contemplation of who I was, I am, will be.”
