Julie Galante is an American artist who has spent the past 10 years moving from country to country.

Through observation, interpretation, and reproduction she seeks to understand the nature of these cities, their inhabitants, and her relationship to them.
Julie has exhibited her work in the US, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, and China; her paintings are held in private collections on six continents. As of January 2013 she lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, having relocated after five years in Munich, Germany.
