ABOUT THE ARTIST: Julia Briggs was surrounded by the landscapes and still life paintings of her grandmother and great-grandmother. Her grandmother served as Julia's inspiration. I remember always having a creative instrument in my hand. I would draw on napkins, books, table tops, and dolls embellishing their faces. After high school graduation, Briggs took a summer drawing course at Parsons School of Design in New York City and soon became a full-time student at Parsons. After graduating from Parsons, Briggs setup a studio in Brooklyn. Soon, Craighead Green Gallery exhibited her work in their Dallas showroom. Briggs name amongst collectors began to grow and is known as a great emerging artist whose work is now in private collection all over the world including China, France, England, Germany, Morocco, Belgium, Italy and the US. juliabriggs.com
