JULIA M. DOUGHTY
With a BFA from The Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, Julia M. Doughty’s journey in textile, graphic and costume design has led her to the joyful discovery of ‘found object’ sculpture. Every aspect of her creative process, from scavenging in the woods and along coastlines, to hours spent in her studio, brings her profound peace. Lured by discarded rusty remnants of past lives, Doughty gives new life to forgotten objects in her ocean-life inspired sculptures.
Since I was a child, rusty iron remnants discarded by past lives, have lured me. I continue their metamorphosis by imagining, creating and elaborating on new lives for these forgotten objects.Julia M. Doughty
