Juliet has enjoyed an extensive career in the creative arts, having originally graduated in Decorative Arts Conservation from Buckinghamshire New University and in postgraduate Heritage Studies from Birmingham University. With experience in the philanthropy and museum sectors, Juliet has since worked for almost twenty years in student mentoring and management roles in education.
Both professionally and personally, she has travelled widely and has lived and worked in Australia, Italy and London before returning to her home city of Oxford, and can therefore appreciate the rich variety of cultural experiences of her Wolsey Hall students. For many years she worked at the Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford, supporting young artists and performers, whilst also working as a freelance curator and engaging in art research.
Over the years, Juliet has kept bees, dogs and fish, and loves animals! She spent several years as a radio presenter, developing programmes for the local community that also involved promoting both amateur and professional productions and – in sportier days! – ran La Grande Classique in Paris, from the Eiffel Tower to Versailles, so absolutely loves to hear about the creative projects and endeavours of her students. She loves spending time with her family and friends and has a small business working with artists and makers.
