Hi! I’m Julie Abels and I love art!

If you’re interested in purchasing some of my art, here’s where to find it!


(when you hire me to create a specific artwork)

Art Prints

Original works of art

I sell prints of my art in a variety of formats: Paintings, Cards, Wood-burnings, Coasters, Ornaments, and more!


If you’re interested in commissioning me to create something for you, scroll down for links to my most common commissions where you’ll be able to see options and prices. If you’re looking for something different, you can send me an email: julie@ridgelightranch.com.

You might also enjoy following me on Facebook or Instagram to see what I’m making.

I have to limit the number of commissions I can take each week, so if you need the item by a certain date, be sure to contact me ahead of time to find out if that’s possible! Generally, your ‘place in line’ is set when you pay for your item. The status of all my commission items is “backorder” because I don’t have a way to schedule commission work on this platform. If you’d like to pay half up-front and half upon completion, please contact me and I’ll arrange for that.


I usually work in the following media:

  • Ink (color OR black & white)
  • Colored Pencil
  • Watercolor paint
  • Woodburning (Pyrography)

I usually work on the following surfaces:

  • Paper
  • Wood
  • Tile

To give you some ideas, here are some past works of art I’ve created:


Pet Portraits

Send me a photo of a beloved pet and I’ll capture their exact look in the media of your choice!

4″ Tile Coasters

4″ Wood Slice Ornaments

Woodburning (pyrography)


Below you’ll find links for some of my standard commissions. If you’re looking for something a little different than the options below, contact me and I’ll create a specific commission just for you. Keep in mind that generally:

  • Subjects that require extensive design cost more than simple subjects.
  • New or unique designs cost more than a repeat of a work of art I’ve done before.
  • Portraits cost more than generic subjects.
  • Multiple subjects (e.g. two animals) cost more than a single animal
  • Bigger is more expensive than smaller.
  • Full-color is a little more expensive than black and white.
  • Wood and tile cost more than paper.
  • Sometimes I’m able to offer extras like a frame or fancy gift wrapping
