Inspired by Marianne North for the BodyFactory

This year’s BodyFactory event was held at the horticultural wonderland of the Eden Project in St Austell, Cornwall. With this as a backdrop, I couldn’t resist casting my lovely model Laura J Draycon as Marianne North, the amazing Victorian artist and botanist who travelled the world painting hundreds of plant portraits that now hang in a special gallery in Kew Gardens.

BodyFactory 2015 – this weekend at the Eden Project

This coming weekend – 10-11 October – I’m off to BodyFactory 2015, the fabulous biennial British body painting festival that attracts a big international crowd. Body painters, models and photographers all work together to stretch our imaginations and skills.

It’s a great chance to to let rip and create something truly special! And I’m really looking forward to exploring the wonders of the visionary Eden Project in St Austell, Cornwall.

A special tea party at Great Ormond Street

w-juliet-eve-mad-hatterThis is me at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Great Ormond Street the other week. I was really chuffed to hear from them: “Dear Juliet, On behalf of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, thank you so much for your generous support of The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party …The party was a great success, with patients and their families all having a wonderful time …  The amazing face-painting that you so kindly provided at the party was a huge hit with the patients.”

All that and I got to wear a top hat, too!
