Julia Hansen: A Walk on the Wild Side 

Artist Julia Hansen’s passion is to accurately portray the individual personalities of animals and loves illustrating exotic creatures. She has been doing fine art for over fifteen years and has endeavored to perfect the technique of creating realism using pastels and oil painting. The fur, poses, and kinds of animals she depicts make one want to reach out and touch them.

She has since won a variety of awards including the Juror’s Choice Award in 2011 Utah Hogle Zoo World of the Wild Art Show. She graduated Spring 2020 with a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University in Museum Studies with an added Digital Curation certificate, and works as an independent curator to help others understand the significance of cultures, art, animals, and history.
