Juliet James graduated from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art in 1994, with a BA Honours degree in Fashion Design (Print specialism). She is based at Thames-side Studios in London, where she paints alongside experiments with mixed media, photography, print-making and digital media. During lockdown she has been based at home, in East Sussex.
Juliet's work is driven by a love of process and experimentation, seeking to distil spontaneous (and sometimes seemingly chaotic) mark-making into harmonious, minimalistic lines.
Surreal, subversive elements, appearing playful and deceptively naïve, along with a strong love of drawing all combine to form the unique signature of her 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.
Juliet is represented by Atherton Green Art Gallery for exhibitions and painting commissions; her animations are available for licensing via Come Alive Images; she is also a member of the Yellow Room Artists collective, People of Print and Saatchi Artists.
