The edging is white canvas with paint drips and is gallery wrapped over 1.5" stretchers. The painting is signed on the back, wired and ready to hang.

Like the gentlest of rainstorms, "Edge of Forever" delights in delivering cascading washes of color — as if gliding over sheer panes of glass — before your eyes. This bold abstract is original artwork, fluid in composition; taking breaks in intensity of color to allow for that feeling of slow, un-rushed movement.

Thanks for contacting us. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.

BIOGRAPHY

In 2000, Julia earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute in New York City. Over the years, her eye for composition coupled with her love of painting, design and photography has earned Julia numerous awards in such publications as Photographer's Forum and Creativity along with inclusion into the Yale Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library Special Collections(ALSC) in New Haven, CT.

Julia never strayed far from texture, paint and the mixing and layering of mediums, which are important components to Julia's work. In fact, Julia's most recent abstracts focus on deconstructing painted color palette studies through isolated images, and then rebuilding those studies with new form and composition.

Julia lives in Norwalk, Connecticut with her husband and son. She spends most weekends tackling new projects and getting into all sorts of adventures with her little guy, Neo. She loves painting & photography, the occasional 5 mile run and feisty discussions across the family dinner table on Sunday evenings.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

"When you layer on the paint just right, so that it dances across a wash of another color, a new level of dimension is created. Combine that dimension with the exploration of color and I’ve just begun to captured something meaningful. My style is single-minded and focused on the simplicity of beauty in the moment. My goal is to drown out the noise and clutter to find a sense of calm through light. The end result is clean, fresh and modern."
