|Juliet trained in Fine Art and initially worked as a freelance designer/illustrator for Penguin Books, Faber and Faber and BBC Publications. She specialised in illustrating books on cookery, including Elizabeth David’s ‘French Provincial Cooking’ and ‘The Penguin Cordon Bleu’. |
Juliet continued her career teaching drawing and painting (including for Surrey County Council adult education classes), individual private commissions and work for Harrods and Wedgwood. She is usually recognised by her pen and wash illustrative style but she works in a range of different mediums, including pastel, mixed media, watercolour and acrylic. Her work features a variety of subjects but mostly focuses on landscapes, townscapes, portraits and still life. She is currently focusing on her portraits but has also begun experimenting with different printing processes.
Juliet is an exhibiting member of Guildford and Farnham Art Societies and was awarded The Kathleen Page Portrait Prize in 2009 and 2010 at the Farnham Art Society’s Annual exhibition. Juliet was the overall winner of the 2010 Guildford Calendar Competition and a second painting also features as the April page. Her paintings adorn the first class cabins of the cruise liner MV Miverna and Guildford Borough Council hold four of her paintings in their permanent collection. In September 2010, Juliet was a winner in the National Trust's “Shalford Mill” competition, with the winners showcased at the Red Biddy Gallery.
More recently, Otters Pool Studio held a rare solo exhibition for Juliet which ran for 7 weeks.
