Jules Cozine’s work is inspired by the extraordinary experience of seeing a massive flock of starlings twisting and turning in unison, known as a murmuration. In an instant, thousands of individual birds commit to a moment of beauty that appears both melodic and mathematical. With her signature ethereal color palette and post-modern compositions, Cozine creates indefinable shapes, like dappled light through the trees. A fractured vision, her soft edges and subtle hues suggest scenes in motion.

Cozine has consistently invested in artistic and educational causes through her association with charitable organizations. Her work is thematically marked by profound dedication to environmental issues. Making this the subject matter of her painting enables Jules to present an enthusiastic celebration of nature.

Cozine earned B.A. and B.F.A. degrees from the University of Georgia and an M.F.A. from Georgia State University. She held teaching positions at the University of Georgia, Savannah College of Art, Atlanta College of Art, and Georgia State University while maintaining a rigorous exhibition schedule and building a family before moving to St. Petersburg. Her extensive exhibition record includes multiple solo shows and dozens of group exhibitions. She has traveled widely and lived abroad (including Italy, Japan, France and England), and her family has hosted guest students for the Takamatsu, Japan Student Exchange program for the last four years.
