Published in 2015, Juliet’s latest offering from the easel is her outstanding labour of love, titled –
“A Watercolour Tribute to Historic Jamaican Churches”. 

This beautiful Jamaican coffee table book includes research text and photographs, and is destined to become a “must have” for collectors.  Page after page, it brings together this artist’s masterful rendering of some of Jamaica’s oldest and most historically interesting buildings, accompanied by impeccably researched text detailing the architectural, cultural, and social background of these magnificent edifices.

The result is a visually and intellectually stimulating account of a slice of Jamaica’s rich heritage. Together with accompanying photographs, the 14 watercolor paintings depict churches across Jamaica, while the text conveys each church’s history and character. 

Replete with stories of love and family, sorrow and triumph, readers will not be able to put the book down.  It is a true delight to those with an appreciation for Caribbean art and history.


ABOUT Juliet Thorburn 
Juliet Thorburn is a Wilmington-based artist with deep Caribbean roots and equally strong talent nurtured by her studies in Jamaica, the United States, and Italy.  Masterful and versatile, Juliet imbues each piece with her signature “magical” touch.  Whether using watercolor or oils, and whether expressing realism or an abstract form she calls “Ethereals” and “Jewelled Ethereals”, this Jamaican fine artist repeatedly harnesses her energy and talent to produce unique views from her mind’s eye.  Many successful shows have been held in Jamaica and abroad, and have had the honour of works repeatedly included in the prestigious Jamaica National Gallery Biennial Exhibition.

Juliet’s greatest source of inspiration has always been nature’s energy.  Growing up amid the island’s natural beauty, she quickly became one of its premier nature artists early in her career.  Spirited and soulful, Juliet’s watercolors, illustrations and works in oils are images that present a decidedly fresh boldness.  More recent works have turned her creative eye inward, departing from the realism of her early works, portraying the essence of her subjects in equally intriguing abstract works she describes as “spiritual imagery.”  Juliet has held many successful shows, in Jamaica and abroad, and the honor of repeatedly having works featured in the prestigious Jamaica National Gallery Biennial Exhibition.   The Jamaican fine artist’s most recent project saw her producing an enchanting watercolor series of the island’s historic churches.
