BIO Julia Fosson now lives in Asheville, NC a vibrant arts community. She began her painting career after leaving her job for 20 years as a Hand Therapist treating traumatic injuries. She will tell you she tried every medium out there and finally found a comfort in oil painting. Her journey to encaustic came in the early 2000’s when a studio mate said her oil’s looked like encaustic. This said she explored and found a love and passion for painting encaustically. It didn’t take long for it to define her as an artist, she attributes her now success to being in Asheville and surrounded by such talented artists and her clients embracing her work.
