She is a PhD candidate in Comparative Literature at Harvard, specializing in the avant-garde and film practices in France, Japan, and the former USSR. Julia has received press from publications such as Reuters, the New York Times, and Bloomberg Business for illustrating the first graphic novel legal brief, submitted as an amicus brief in USA vs. Apple. She has lived in Kiev, Chicago, New York City, Paris, Cambridge, Kanazawa, and Yokohama, and currently lives in Brooklyn with her partner Brandon and a dog named Leopold Bloom.


""The black and white palette and watercolor palette juxtaposes the stark brutality of the history being explored with the everyday joys that Lola and Julia both discover. Successful use of full page splashes and varied panel sizes guide the reader through the story." "Offers a little explored view into the Jewish experience in the Soviet Union and beyond. ... With the modern rise of neo-Nazis and anti-feminism, it's important to find literature that explores the experiences of the not-too-distant past before it returns." **Soviet Daughter was selected as the winner of the Adult category of the Virginia Library Association Graphic Novel Award 2017**" - Virginia Library Association
