Julia Stewart maintains her studio in Richmond, Virginia. She is a graduate of VCU School of the Arts with a BFA in Painting and Printmaking.
Julia uses rich colors and stark contrasts in value to depict urgent, dramatic scenes. She paints about her own experiences– a constant mess of sexuality, desires, insecurities, and loss. Influenced by the compellingly vulnerable and emotional figures popular in Renaissance art, her interest in the human condition is unapologetically evident in her work.
