Born and raised in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, Julia Mae Bancroft grew up deeply inspired by nature. In 2009 she moved to Washington DC where she attended The Corcoran College of Art + Design, graduating with a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in 2013. Spending a semester abroad living in London, England, Bancroft first explored interests in fashion design at the Central Saint Martins College of Art + Design. It was here that she began consistently incorporating hand-stitching into artwork, profoundly moved by the one-of-a-kind practice of couture embroidery. The discovery of this medium in combination with Bancroft’s background in darkroom photography and painting melded into her current mixed media practice.
