Julie Heffernan

Julie Heffernan’s canvases speak equally to contemporary imagery and subject as to historical and traditional notions of painting. Her loosely allegorical representations are lavish with detail and attentive technique. Based in New York, Heffernan has exhibited actively both nationally and internationally; she is Associate Professor of Fine Arts at Montclair State University and has been the recipient of awards from the National Academy Museum, The New York Foundation for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
