Julia Baugh holds a BS in Respiratory Care from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and an MA from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock. As native Arkansas, she has harbored a love of art dating back to her early childhood. This interest persisted through high school and afterwards in collage with ceramics.

In 2002 she became a respiratory therapist and practiced in the medical field for 10 years total in both Little Rock Arkansas and San Francisco California. Her path back to ceramics began at a small clay studio in Northern California in 2009. She returned to Little Rock in 2010, and took a wheel throwing class at the Arkansas Art Center as a creative outlet. Following the encouragement of her class instructor, she took an independent study wheel throwing class at UALR, and shortly after began working on her MA with an emphasis in studio art in ceramics.
