Julie Hicks began her art career in New York City. There, she worked at the metropolitan Museum of Art and at the Whitney Museum. Later she moved to Brazil where her paintings took on the colors and depth of the landscape. After returning to the U.S. she moved to Connecticut where she created sculptures for the U.S. Agencies’ foreign exhibits and also for display windows in New York City.
For the last 28 years her home has been Westport, Connecticut. However, she travels extensively around the world, spending months at a time in South America, India, Africa and Indonesia. Her paintings are infused with the influence of her journeys.
Painting in her studio in her Westport home, she concentrates on vivid color, radiance in seascapes and landscapes and exposing the beauty in unexpected objects such as faucets, eggs and vegetables.
Julie has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Michigan.
