Julie Gearan enjoys exploring a narrative in her painting; she describes herself as “a painter of themes that connect human relationships of past and present, linking ancient myths with our current everyday lives.” She also is interested in the portrait as a genre, and has recently been selected to paint the official portrait of Governor Lincoln D. Chafee. Gearan received her BFA from the Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, and her MFA from Indiana University in Bloomington. She has studied, worked and lived in New York, Philadelphia, Italy, Chicago, and Providence; she currently teaches part-time at the Rhode Island School of Design and Roger Williams University.
