Statement

Juliette Aristides was born in 1971 in Cape Town, South Africa, now living in Seattle, Washington. Married with three children works from a studio in the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle and alternates her time between painting, writing and teaching traditional drawing and painting techniques.

Aristides has studied extensively for ten years under the best instructors she could find. This took her many places, from big institutions like The National Academy of Design and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art to private artist studios. She has participated in many respected exhibitions and has garnered impressive honors and awards including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant.

She was an original member of the Water Street Atelier and currently teaches at The Seattle Academy of Fine Art where she founded the award winning Classical Atelier Program. Aristides is a regular contributor to Artist Magazine and published two books with Watson-Guptill; Classical Drawing Atelier and Classical Painting Atelier.

Her work could loosely be called classical realism, since she takes design system and artistic techniques from art history and applies them to contemporary works. Aristides invites the viewer to share an inner world as she explores her identity through the roles of artist, teacher, historian and mother. She utilizes historical references, which entice the viewer's intellect. She employs a rich warm palette, reminiscent of another age.
