Meet the Artist

After a fulfilling and varied work life, award-winning pastelist Julia Doemland returned to her first love: painting the landscape. As a young woman she studied fine arts at Parson School of Design and Brooklyn College. She later went on to study other interests and remained in academia teaching exercise and sport psychology at Rutgers University before retiring.

 

Julia lives in the Sourland mountain region of central New Jersey, a rich and diverse landscape characterized by mature forest and pastoral passes amid farmland, native grass, and wetlands.  This special area is the inspiration for much of her work. Through the use of pastels, the unique qualities of the Sourlands comes to life. Her focus is on early morning light as it illuminates the roads, fields and trees, water and the sky.
