Julia completed two years of undergraduate studies at the University of Western Ontario, and received her Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Art History from the University of British Columbia in 2007. She gained valuable experience through an Art Dealers Association of Canada Internship in 2008 and was subsequently hired as the Assistant Manager for an artist-owned gallery specializing in Northwest Coast artwork. Prior to joining Heffel, Julia managed a Vancouver gallery that focused on Canadian contemporary and historical artwork.
Julia's knowledge of Canadian art in both the secondary and retail markets is an asset to her role at Heffel. Julia handles private sales, secures consignments for Heffel's online and live auctions, assists with appraisals and manages the presentation of the Vancouver gallery. She also liaises closely with Heffel's shipping department and is involved with gallery administration.
Julia's passion for art and her experience in the industry is integral to her responsibilities at Heffel and she looks forward to many more years at the Vancouver office.
