From a childhood of creativity to finding solace in art through challenging times, Juliette has always had a love of design and making.
After attaining a Design degree, Juliette worked in retail and buying for several years before gaining teaching qualifications and switching careers. Juliette then went on to lecture in both Design and Textiles for over 15 years, sharing her passion with a wider audience whilst developing her own archive of sketchbook creativity.
The artwork for many of Juliette’s designs combine a number of techniques including hand embroidery, painting, wirework, drawing, paper cutting, photography, machine embroidery, printing and textile manipulation – she's definitely a mixed media artist!
With a tendency to visualise an idea and then explore different ways to express it ~ it's all about capturing the design in Juliette's imagination using whichever materials and processes are to hand and, more often than not that involves using recycled and unused materials.

With Juliette’s calming sketchbook designs receiving such positive feedback, business ideas started forming and in 2022 Juliette was joined by her lifelong friend and sister-in-law Keran who she met at Art College. Keran’s love of business ultimately led her to work for several large corporations most recently as Vice President General Manager at Estee Lauder Companies. Together their complementary skills have led to the launch of the Juliette O Designs fabric ranges.
We create original fabric designs for nature lovers that care about the environment whilst also appreciating style and authenticity and these are now realised in our beautiful linen interior collections.
With people now spending more time than ever at home, interiors that bring us both physical and emotional comfort are vital and we at Juliette O Designs love being able to contribute to this in some way. Our products are printed on natural fabrics and manufactured in the UK with sustainability in mind.
In more recent times Juliette has found Art Therapy particularly beneficial and you can read more about her journey with it here.
