Julia Maddalina '18

I have been drawing ever since I could hold a pencil. My parents, both having been fine art majors, recognized my passion, obsession, and drive, and continued to encourage me. When I turned 14, I was introduced to one of my mentors, Steve Carpenter. I have taken many oil painting and figure study classes with him over the past four years. Since I began to get involved in the Rochester Art community, I have taken lessons and workshops with artists Chris Kolupski, Olivia Kim, and Kevin Feary, along with national artists Scott Burdick, Robert Liberace, Michelle Dunaway, David Kassan, and Jeff Hein. I find studying the figure to be both challenging and limitless and believe that studying the work of the masters represents the highest level of learning. A little bit of everything I learn moves though my works, as I continue to develop my own unique style. I have loved my time at CIA! My peers and the staff members here are like a family to me. I hope to graduate with a BFA in Illustration and a concentration in Biomedical Art.
