Julia Redgrave has lived and worked in Nova Scotia since 1981.  She grew up in Ontario where she attended Sheridan College and Ontario College of Art.

Her concerns as a painter are to capture the natural beauty that surrounds her. The most recent work, “Open Road” and “Wind and Sail” continues her intrigue with the interpretation of our journeys as visual metaphor. The “Bird Series” captures the powerful icons often embodied by these wonderful creatures.

Julia has been an instructor in the Department of Fine Art at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish Nova Scotia since 1997 and teaches the foundation “Introduction to Drawing” course. Julia has participated in many solo and group shows at various galleries and has sold her work internationally. Her work is principally accomplished using a unique technique of mixed media featuring acrylic washes and oil pastels on Arches paper.

Julia’s work is represented by Lyghtesome Gallery in Antigonish and Destination Gallery in Parrsboro .
