Illustrator Profile – Juliette Furlong

Good Monday morning illustrators and writers! Today we are casting the spotlight on Juliette Furlong.  Here is what Juliette had to say about herself:

I’m an aspiring author/illustrator with a background in graphic design and print media. My goal is to create character driven stories that express heart and soul in an original and poignant way. I love bright colors and intricate line work, which is why I like working in colored ink so much. I also enjoy working in pencil, charcoal and watercolor. I like making eyes the focal point, because it can generate a warmth or deep connection with a person or animal.

We love the way the eyes draw the observer into her vibrant art, forming an instant connection:

It is obvious why she was awarded a portfolio review by the Jack Reid Scholarship fund at our last “Staying On Track” conference. You may remember that Juliette designed the wonderful brochure for that same conference.
Many thanks to Juliette for sharing her illustrations with us. We look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.

    I work for Visart, a not for profit art center in Rockville, Maryland with three galleries, studios and classrooms. Would your group be interested in showing in our Common Ground Gallery?

    We are having two gallery openings tomorrow, Friday, February 10 from 7-9 P.M. If someone from your group would like to come, that would br great. If someone would like to see the gallery, I work every Thursday or could meet on another day to show the gallery.

    Thanks for your time.
