Julie Beck began her artistic journey struggling as a self taught oil painter while working for 10 years in a career focused on graphic design and video editing. Finding technical art training became the catalyst for a complete life overhaul. Since then, Julie has become an instructor as well as the Assistant Director of the Academy of Realist Art Boston.

Julie creates work with a wide range of subjects including narrative still life paintings and the occasional animal/figurative works. Her interest lies in exploring and testing boundaries of reality, rules, and the interaction between the paint and viewer.

Julie has won Best in Show/First Place awards in Allied Artists of America, the Wethersfield Academy Biennial, Guild of Boston Artists, Art Renewal Center Annual Salon, Richeson Still Life and Floral, Savvy Painter Competition and more. Her work can be found in private collections throughout the US and internationally.
