About Julia Breckenreid
Some bits about me:
- I'm an illustrator living in Toronto, working in a studio on the east side.
- I travel, I read, I eat - I need to ride my bike more. Maybe some running.
- I teach part-time during the fall and winter semesters in the Illustration BA at Sheridan College... I love it. The students make me think. And think again.
- In 2009 I illustrated a kids book named An Eye for Color: The Story of Josef Albers, which is now in it's 2nd printing.
With just over 15 years of experience, Julia Breckenreid's images have garnered recognition from many awards annuals and associations.
