Juliet celebrates the beauty and moods of New Zealand’s coastlines and landscapes with highly textured impasto landscapes, and lots of luxuriously illuminating gold-leaf.
Her beautifully layered artwork includes strong horizon lines and rich tonal palettes.
Her extensive work with tapa cloth, gold leaf and texture mediums on canvas or wood panel shapes is also an important part of her art practice.
She is the co-owner of the stunning seaside Shelly Bay Art Gallery.
Juliet is the 2020 Artist in Residence for the Life Flight Rescue Helicopter Wellington.
Her love of painting New Zealand's stunning landscapes, native birds, flora and fauna over many years is thoughtful, emotive and very beautiful.
