Julia Klimova was born in southwest Russia; her early childhood was happy, filled with laughter and inspiration. As far back as she can remember art was always a part of her life. She was able to use her artwork to open doorways to other places and escape into them while painting. Her mother always encouraged her to explore her surroundings, to find inspiration in the smallest details and to paint what she felt.
Klimova is not drawn to any one particular subject, at any time she can have multiple genres on the go. Painting an abstract piece on one easel while putting the finishing touches on a still life on the other. This freedom has allowed her to adapt to her surroundings and to find inspiration everywhere.
Klimova went to school to study Fine Arts and upon graduation worked as an Interior Designer. It wasn't until she moved to North America that she took on art as a full time career. After a brief stay in Tennessee, she moved with her family to Southern Ontario where she now resides.
She is represented in select galleries and private collections in Canada, Great Britain and the USA.
