Julia Soderholm is an artist & art educator based on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples, also known as Vancouver, British Columbia. 

Julia Soderholm’s curiosity and attentiveness to her natural environment is apparent in her paintings, where each brushstroke starts as an observation. Through the act of letting go of representation, Julia works to express her experience and memories of space and place with gestural mark-making. In this retelling of landscape, colours become saturated, forms blur with movement, and shapes distort.
