Renowned for her lavish, imaginative paintings, New York-based artist Julie Heffernan creates opulent worlds that are undergoing a slow degradation. She draws inspiration from a variety of sources - her Catholic upbringing, feminist leanings and global affairs, among others. Her transcendent narratives function as social metaphors that are often derived from dreams and her subconscious. Heffernan considers much of her work as a kind of interior self-portrait, and titles them as such.
