Julia Drachman works in many media including graphite, charcoal, acrylic and oil paints, and digital art. She is particularly inspired by subject matter related to memory and the inherent filters through which we recall spaces, places, and people. Her most recent work explores portraiture in the age of constant self-representation and self-examination. She is interested in deciphering the friction between how we view ourselves and how others view us.
Julia grew up in Seattle, Washington until she moved to Connecticut to attend Wesleyan University. There she studied Architecture through the Studio Art and Art History programs. She now lives and works on Bainbridge Island, WA where she works for McLennan Design, an architecture and consulting firm that does deep green sustainable work through a regenerative, ecologically sensitive design practice.
