This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information was submitted by the artist in April of 2006:

As a child Julia loved exploring with line and color by drawing on her walls and  dolls. She learned very quickly that with a little control, she could manifest  ideas into recognizable form. Her mother loved the classical masters, and Julia links  a great deal of her desire for expression back to her exposure (and love) of the  classical masters such as Mozart and Beethoven.

Julia  was encouraged from a very young age to "see" and be "aware" in more ways than  the visual, and immediately after high school she took courses in the University of Calgary Fine Arts' program. She went on to continue studies at a post secondary  level throughout her alternate career in the Canadian Air Force, in both correspondence  and night school.  One of her ultimate goals was finally reached when she attended a full time degree program at University of Lethbridge, receiving a Bachelor of  Fine Arts with Great Distinction in 2001.

Historical art influences on her work include the Greek classical, da Vinci, Rembrandt, Ingres,  Delacroix, Manet, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, and most recently, Klee  and Kandinsky. Influences from art theory include John Berger, Josef Albers, from  theosophy Leadbetter and Blavatsky, and currently Fritjof Capra and Joseph Campbell.

Her  ideas incorporate her philosophy and understanding of life and space. Her interests,  which are currently manifesting in her expression consist of a combination of  concepts from fourth dimensional physics (specifically time and space), and music.  She considers the fifth dimension to be that of the realm of experiential physics. How she approaches her art making is a result of her experiences in her previous  career, and her own adaptation of the Principles of War - the most important being the Objective, Simplicity, and the Offensive.

Although Julia is conversant with many mediums and supports, she primarily uses oil paint because of its sensual properties of liquidity and lusciousness. This allows her to explore the fourth dimension on a two dimensional surface, in an immediate and gestural form with saturated colours and a simultaneously bold and sensitive manner. The strokes of paint become notational and describe the human form or concepts in a musical, rhythmic style.

Since  arriving in Kelowna in 2001, Julia has built a reputation on cooperation and initiative,  for the success of all. She believes vehicles, such as Kelowna and District Arts  Council, Chamber Music Kelowna and most recently, the Okanagan Symphony, are the way to increase exposure for all artists and to educate and enrich the public.
