Julianne is Head of Color and Artwork at Glossier. Prior to that, she served as creative project manager on the marketing design team of VTS, a real estate software company. Before that, she was a coordinator at Estee Lauder in New York City. She also has her own business that involves putting her own art of silk scarves.

As an artist, she works mainly in portraiture, using primarily watercolors, ink, and charcoal. In her personal work she also creates large-scale abstractions, usually created digitally and printed onto aluminum.

Julianne is a 2016 Mitchell Scholar. She received an MA in Writing from the University of Galway where she created a collection of illustrated poetry and worked on the script for a graphic novel project. While in Ireland she exhibited in Galway and Dublin. Julianne was fascinated by the close-knit artist communities she got to know throughout Ireland, and had the pleasure of visiting the studios of local professional artists such as Richard Hearns and Jim FitzPatrick. She also interned for Art for Amnesty, which led her to Aubusson, France where she was able to document how traditional fine art tapestries are created by hand. As a Jewish artist interested in creating work inspired by postmemory following the Holocaust as well as contemporary Jewish identity, she spent a great deal of her Mitchell year in the Jewish Museum in Dublin, as well as travelling to Jewish communities internationally including in Italy, Spain, and Morocco.

She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Connecticut.
