Julija Mostykanova Feeney acknowledges Nantucket as the bridge that lead her to a career in art. Originally from Lithuania, Julija moved to Nantucket fifteen years ago where she was met with the opportunity to take a class at the Artists Association. A small seed was planted that later grew into a successful full time career as an artist. Her array of work has evolved in the direction of oil painting, with subjects varying between landscape, still life, and abstract paintings. Tucked away in the peace and quiet of her Tom Nevers studio, Julija often works on a number of paintings at a time, drawing mostly from memory and sometimes photographs.
