Julia Licht's art combines elements of social satire with humor, wit and more than a little bit of love.

Subjects include city people stressed and unstressed: a young women who thinks of herself as femme fatale is newly encumbered with responsibility for a child; and more recently a jungle mural filled with loving animals for a child's room. Julia has been on FOX Five Good Day NY for her children murals. Other interests include writing illustrated children's stories and short novels and stage design.

A graduate in printmaking, painting and drawing at the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia: she was born in New York City; grew up in St. James, NY and lives with her children Jade, Azzurra and Ivory.

For eight years she supported herself selling artwork on the streets of NYC. She has been published in the New Yorker and other publications. Her ceramic tile art murals can be viewed at www.tileartjulia.com.
