Julie Alpert was born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, DC and is a Seattle-based installation artist and painter. Her work uses pattern and repetition to explore decoration, disappointment, femininity, and nostalgia.

Julie has a BA in painting from the University of Maryland and an MFA in painting from the University of Washington. She is the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Award, two MacDowell Colony Fellowships, a Virginia Center for the Creative Arts Fellowship, two Artist Trust GAP Awards, The New Foundation Residency Program Grant, and was a finalist for the 2013 Neddy Awards. She has been a Visiting Artist at Clark College and was commissioned by the inaugural Seattle Art Fair to create a 54-foot installation at MadArt Studio. She is a 2017-2018 Roswell Artist-in-Residence Fellow, which will bring her to New Mexico for one year.

Julie is represented by Bridge Productions in Seattle. From 2009-2014, she was a member of SOIL Artist-Run Gallery.
