About The Artist
Juliet Bell began her career in theater design, building properties for a number of regional theaters in the U.S. including off Broadway, and eventually in London. In 1998, she founded BellArt, a wooden jigsaw puzzle company for which she created the artwork for traditional puzzles, and the designs for non-traditional wood stained puzzles. These one-of-a-kind puzzles were sold at fine craft stores, juried galleries, and privately.
Born and adopted in England and raised in the U.S., it was not until many years after pursuing a career in the arts that she found both birth parents and discovered they were artists. Not only had they worked in the theater, but both were painters. Her mother attended the Slade School of Fine Art, and specialized in watercolor painting. Her father was a distinguished and award-winning artist who lived and painted in Newfoundland and Scotland.
Juliet’s current passion is oil painting. She is essentially self-taught, though she has taken many art classes. Juliet’s paintings have sold at a number of New England art galleries and at the Monadnock Arts Auction. Most recently, “Lily On Pond” won 3rd place at Renoartio’s May 2016 competition. She lives and paints in a little house in the woods of New Hampshire.
