Julia Haw (b.1982) is an oil painter and writer living in Brooklyn, NY.  She received her education at Western Michigan University, and graduated in 2006 with a Bachelors degree in painting. Haw works primarily in oil paint on cotton, and since 2006 has committed to addressing issues surrounding feminism, ageism, marginalized communities, intimacy, death, and overlooked societal “norms.”  Her paintings have encouraged thorough discussion and inquiry amongst viewers, bringing a sense of public forum forth. Haw’s work has been exhibited internationally in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and in the U.S. at the Chicago Cultural Center, IL State Museum, P.S. 1 Biennale (New Orleans), and various other galleries located in Michigan, Illinois and Louisiana.

Haw has been invited as a lecturer at CUNY and recurring lecturer at Western Michigan University, and currently instructs workshops at The Art Students League of New York. The artist splits her time between Brooklyn, New York and Siem Reap, Cambodia.
