“Both a multi-faceted spin on the pervasive selfie and an erudite capsule of feminist history” - Riot Material

The level of detail and her use of color is enough for any art lover to be drawn to Julie Heffernan's works. But the fact her paintings pack so much cultural significance and a feminist viewpoint makes them even more special.
