about me

Howdy! My name is Julia Hamilton.  I recently graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Management. This has been a drastic change from my previous education at the Savannah College of Art and Design, however my love for wildlife science and art has led me to create my own small business that accommodates to all of my interests. 

Horses are the main subject of work. I grew up riding, owning, and showing horses, and have been in love with these amazing creatures my whole life. I currently work as a riding instructor and trail guide in Centre County, and truly believe I am living the dream! 

Over the years, I have become very involved with birding. It has been wonderful to learn about Pennsylvania birds, and I have had the excellent opportunity to study migrating birds in this busy birding month of May!  I have recently added wildlife portraits to my repertoire, and hope that you enjoy this new part of my business's journey. 

Additionally, I work with people and their pets of all kinds. I sincerely love getting to know each animal, and hope to continue honoring animals of all kinds through my work.
