Juliet was born in 1971 in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, spending her childhood dividing time between the North, Sussex and Florence, Italy. She settled in London to study at Central St. Martin’s College of Art and Design where she graduated in 1994 with a BA Honours degree in Fashion and Printed Textile Design. South East England is the permanent base she considers home.
Juliet’s main artistic practice is primarily painting, periodically branching into digital animation, printmaking and photography. Humour, a love of process and experimentation, surreal and subversive elements and a strong love of drawing combine to form the unique signature of Juliet’s style.
In 2018 Juliet had two paintings, Hot Pants (Replication II) and the Garden of Venus, chosen to hang in Grayson Perry’s Yellow Room as part of the 250th anniversary of the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. Following from the success of this well-received exhibition, Juliet has exhibited almost continuously, including exhibitions in London, the South East and Rome.
Juliet has ongoing collaborations with Atherton Green Art, for exhibitions and painting commissions; Come Alive Images for animation and motion graphics projects; the collective known as the Yellow Room Artists; and also a member of People of Print.
