"The work of Julia Dennis has often been described as
motivational, inspirational, engaging and all around beautiful.
Her dedication to creating art of various genres (such as painting, murals, and illustration) coupled with her passion for teaching art is evident in everything she creates. Her work draws people in to take a look at snapshots of life through her eyes. "
I am a Winnipeg-based mixed media artist and photographer. In 2002, after travelling in Guatemala, with a one year faith-based college program I decided to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts honours degree at the University of Manitoba. There I majored in painting and then went on to complete a Bachelor of Education from the University of Manitoba. I specialized in art education. I regularly seek out art courses through various venues that have included Red River College, Prairie-view school of Photography in Winnipeg and also Central St. Martins College of Art and Design in London, England.
I create art in a variety of mediums that include fibre arts, painting, ceramics, ink drawings, photography, and installation art with a strong focus on acrylic and watercolour paintings. I have spent time volunteering with various community organizations in Guatemala, teaching English and painting murals in Mexico, and volunteering with Siloam Mission's Art Program in Winnipeg.
Currently I create art for sale and publications, teach the high school art program at Stonewall Collegiate as well as an after-school art class to elementary students. My passions lie in being creative, living my faith, and providing strong art education.
Julia Dennis loves to create art...
