Award-winning artist Julia Blake recently started painting again after several years away from the easel. She has an impressive ability to work across many styles from abstract to figure. She tends to use vivid colors, high contrast and bold strokes to create aesthetic and meaningful works. As an artist she was a peer- and client-nominated finalist for 40 Women to Watch Over Forty - a list of 'women in the world who are innovators, role-models and makers, creating momentum and changing the world'. Her art is in private collections in several states from Hawaii to Massachusetts. Julia lives in the Boston area with her husband and their six children.
