Julie McMahon Borge joins LBGE!
Now on view at LBGE is new work by oil painter Julie McMahon Borge. Originally from Western, MA Borge now resides in Buck's County, PA with her husband and three children. Borge has painted and created all of her life. Her formal education includes a BA in English and Art History from Boston College and an BFA in Painting from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. In 1995, a benign brain tumor caused Borge to lose the sight in her right eye and forced her to take a break from painting until recently. She returned to painting with a developed, loose and minimal style. She is able to create representational forms with limited and edited strokes, highlighting her mastery of oil and palette knife.
