Watch: Julia Lambright
Julia Lambright’s dream to become an artist started in her native Russia. But it didn’t end there. As a successful makeup artist in Moscow, Lambright felt there was something missing in her life.
Her path led her to the Land of Enchantment, and the University of New Mexico where she received her Masters in Fine Arts. While her visit to New Mexico reinvigorated her spiritual side, she started to incorporate an older form of artistic expression that she had overlooked, egg tempera – a simple mixture of egg yolks, water, vinegar and pigments.
“I decided I’ll celebrate my new life here in New Mexico, my new spiritual life, through this practice.”
