About the Artist
The constraints of her autobiographical journey inform artist Julia Barbee’s subjects and material choices. She has worked with wearable sculpture, performance, film, food, social media, photography, retail space, and the written word. Currently, she is exploring play with her children, and creating a homeschool preschool curriculum for them with her husband based on the alphabet. On many special occasions she makes pavlovas for gatherings, often documenting the vanitas aftermath. With her husband and a friend, she co-founded and curated a five-year running art event called Spaceness. She has an MFA in fiber, and has been working in Portland, Oregon for almost two decades where she lives with her family.
