Juliet Best's paintings include strong horizon lines, highly textured landscapes and the warmth of gold-leaf. She celebrates the beauty and moods of New Zealand’s coastlines and landscapes with her finely layered and blended colours. She has a deep respect and love for the vast topography and horizons of New Zealand, including the flora and fauna. 

A full-time artist, Juliet is also the co-owner of the Blackmore & Best Gallery in Wellington. She recently completed two successful years as the resident guest artist with Air New Zealand, Wellington Koru lounges. Her painting, A Tapa Full O’ Manu, is featured in the Museum Art Hotel Artists Walk (NZ). She was the 2017 guest artist and speaker at the annual all-day charity Champions Lunch held at Te Papa. Juliet was also selected to participate in the 2018 Auckland Big Hoot Art Trail.
