JULIE MESSERSCHMIDT

Acting on a strong urge to develop her life-long interest in drawing, Julie first picked up a paint brush in 1995. Watercolor was her medium of choice, and her passion for painting developed quickly. Living in the Boston area, she was able to study with well known artists from the long established group of painters working in Rockport, MA as well as at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

 

Julie relocated to Tampa, FL in 2000, where she quickly received acclaim and numerous awards for her vibrant floral watercolors. “Though I enjoyed working in watercolor, I had always had a desire to paint in oil.  

 

In 2005, during a trip to Florence, Italy, Julie learned about the Florence Academy of Art and knew immediately that she wanted to study there one day.  “The beautiful craftsmanship exhibited by artists at the Academy was breathtaking and I fell in love with the work I saw.”  In 2007, Julie realized her goal to study at the renowned Academy.  She has continued to study and learn from the work of classically trained contemporary artists including, Sarah Lamb at the Grand Central Atelier in New York City, Paul S. Brown, Jeffrey Larsen, Christopher Groves and David Leffel.

 

“My love of Old Master Still Life Painting and simple everyday objects both old and new are the inspiration for my still life work.
