Julie Beck

Julie Beck

Originally from Upstate New York, Julie Beck attended Roger Williams University in Rhode Island where she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics. After a 10 year career in graphic design/ video editing with continued self-taught artistic development, a move to Massachusetts introduced her to the Academy of Realist Art, Boston. Finding technical training in her 30s catapulted her work to a new level. This became the catalyst for a complete life overhaul. Since then, Julie has become an instructor as well as the Assistant Director of ARA 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. Julies work can be found in private collections throughout the US and internationally.
