Growing up in mid-coast Maine, Julia spent a majority of her time swimming in the Kennebec River and running barefoot outside. Julia's love of nature was developed at an early age and has remained consistent in her life and in her art work. "I am fascinated by all of the colors, detail and light (in nature) and I try to capture that in my work," she says.
Julia works in a range of mediums from watercolors to acrylic and mixed media. Over the course of her career, her art work has grown larger in scale. Today, Julia paints murals. "I really enjoy large works of art because it demands your attention. You can't help but be engrossed in the scene and in each brush stroke"-Julia Walker.
