A fine portrait is more than an accurate presentation of a person. Portraits are a lasting tribute to someone you love. An heirloom for generations to come. A fine drawing captures the true essence and spirit of a person, allowing you to look into their eyes and feel their presence forever.
Julia Robinson, or Jules as she is known by her friends, specializes in portrait drawing in graphite and charcoal, and works out of Rehoboth Beach, DE. She enjoys working with people to create one of a kind, lasting, and memorable portraits of loved ones. Other examples of her creative style works are also for sale as reproductions.
Julia began her art training with local artist and teacher, Colleen Lowe, working with all types of media and subjects. She recently spent a summer at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy, where she studied portrait drawing and painting in the classical technique of the great masters. Pictured left, Julia is working on a cast drawing during a class in Italy. Cast drawing was emphasized because it provides experience with shading and value. Live model drawing was also an integral part her training; an example of which is her work entitled Standing Nude She has been accepted into Brown University where she plans to further develop her creative skills as a studio art major.
