Julia received her diploma degree in psychology by the Technical University Dresden in 2012. After working a few years at the child- and adolescent psychiatry, Julia's desire to combine the two major s a topics in her life, psychology and art, grew strong enough for her to take up studying art therapy at Weißensee Academy of Arts Berlin. 
At this time she began exploring the possibilities of darkroom printing resulting in her greatest passion so far. She did a lot of experiments and tried to find new ways moving slightly away from using traditional techniques. 

She won the Young Talent Award of dieHO Galerie, Magdeburg, in 2009 and was one of the winners of the German Youth Photography Award in 2014. 
She opened an artist-run space and was managing an analog photography & darkroom course at the Art Museum Magdeburg in 2019. 

Currently Julia balances working at the psychiatry with being a free artist.
