Juliet Walshe is from Hertford,Hertfordshire. Juliet’s work is concerned with how she translates her emotional and visual response to the landscape. She is interested in the materiality and physicality of paint, colour and mark-making. Juliet’s objective is to record her encounters in the landscape based on sensory perceptions including sound, smell and touch, rather than just sight.

Juliet’s process starts with a journey in the car or a walk and often re-visits places that capture her interest. She works in mixed media, typically oils and acrylics. She will use soil, sand, ground up rocks and builders plaster to build up layers. She likes to work outside as much as possible, as long as the weather permits. Sometimes, the weather will contribute to the surface. Juliet completes the paintings
inside the studio.

Juliet has been inspired by the landscape from places she has lived or visited on her travels. Examples include Dorset, Hertfordshire, the Greek Islands, Morocco, Spain, South West London and surrounding countryside in the Surrey Hills and South Downs, Lanzarote, Devon and Cornwall.
