My name is Julia Robinson and I am the new summer intern at Art Toronto.
I am originally from Vancouver Island, and moved to New Brunswick to complete my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Mount Allison University. I studied studio arts (painting and photography in particular) and art history, and was lucky enough to experience life in the Deep South, where I spent a semester at the University of Central Arkansas. In September 2011 I plan to spread my wings further by moving to London to obtain my Master’s in the Fine and Decorative arts at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art. For now I feel lucky to call Vancouver ‘home’; now that I’ve returned to the West Coast I realize how much I missed the mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
I am excited to spend my summer working with the Art Toronto crew, and am very much looking forward to seeing the fair unfold! I also hope to bring some new stories and a different outlook to impression/expression and look forward to joining Maggie and the rest of you in this conversation!
