Mendocino Coast Artist Julie Higgins is known for her vibrant, sensual, colorful compositions of voluptuous figures and fertile landscapes that have delighted art lovers for many years. Working primarily in soft pastel and sometimes acrylic, her travels from the ocean to the inland valleys and beyond are a constant source of inspiration.
Artist and art are both rooted in the Heartland. Born and raised in the Midwest, Higgins attended the University of Kansas where she earned her BFA in Painting and Sculpture. She has received many awards and honors and her work has appeared on and in numerous publications.
Higgins is the resident artist at "the girl & the fig" restaurants in Sonoma and Glen Ellen, CA since 1998. She currently lives on the Mendocino Coast of California where she continues to express her participation in the feast of life through images as a symbolic language. In Mendocino, she is represented by Prentice Gallery. For more information please visit her website. www.artistjuliehiggins.com
