Julie Gifford Biography


Julie Gifford

I’m interested in celebrating the spirit of land, sea & sky and the resilience of the creatures who inhabit it.  When painting, I’m working on an internal script…a bit of prose which reveals itself through marks on canvas – a personal conversation that comes from within and becomes clear only upon completion.

Julie has lived on both coasts of the US and a few States in-between.  In a yearly migration, she always returned to the Ocean and New England.  It is here, where she finds inspiration and solace.
Whether painting shore birds or interior spaces, there is always a hint of the mystery of our natural world.

Julie currently lives in Cotuit, Massachusetts.
