Julianne Martin always knew she wanted to be an artist. Growing up, she loved drawing and painting because it allowed her to absorb and reflect the world around her as well as explore her own active imagination! As an undergraduate student, Julianne studied painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University. After receiving her BFA, she went on to
earn her MFA in painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
Julianne was part of the Low-Residency program at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, where she was able to further devote her time to her artwork.
Julianne’s paintings connect the beauty and energy of the garden, the ocean, and the forest to the experience of being alive. Constructed on wood or canvas with stained emblems, delicate graphite and sparkling veils, these acrylic and oil paintings celebrate the extension of the human spirit into animal and botanical worlds. Inspired by the seasons of the New England coast and countryside, Julianne also paints landscapes on wood panels.
Julianne’s experience as a teacher began in an early childhood classroom after she completed her graduate studies. She found that teaching young artists was a wonderful way to share her knowledge and experience of art, and since then has gone on to teach elementary students, middle school, young adult students, and adults. Julianne believes that art education is important because it teaches us to observe, express, empathize, understand,
connect, and dream.
