Julie Garfield


Julie Garfield is an award winning actress, who came to painting later in her life. Julie had a full career performing in the Theatre, both On and Off Broadway, and in Film and Television. She is the daughter of the legendary actor, John Garfield, who was Black Listed in the 1950s, and died as a result.

As a young woman, Julie studied painting with Leo Manso, at The Provincetown Workshop, in 1964. She majored in Art at the University of Wisconsin, but then decided to follow her path as an actress, and teacher of acting.

Julie returned to her studies as an artist intermittently, until she enrolled in the New York Studio School, where she studied for a year, in 2004, and eventually became a full time Artist.
