Artist Julia Sweda has a passion for creating beautiful tile art that shows off unique and interesting facets of European based culture, tradition, native lifestyles and history. In her tile art reproductions on this website she has emulated master artists such as da Vinci, Auguste Racinet, W.H. Pyne, Denis Diderot, and Bouguereau.
Her paintings and portraits provide glimpses into nostalgic bygone eras and lifestyles to modern day ethnic and cultural traditions which includes family heraldry heritage. Her scenic landscape paintings will have you feeling you are in Budapest, Hungary overlooking the Danube River, in a peaceful village in Spain or Portugal, or on the coastal waters of Old Town Ulcinj, Montenegro.

The commissioned tile murals and decorative tiles shown below feature examples that were coordinated and developed with input and suggestions from the client to create tile paintings that have been fully customized just for them.
