Juliette Hadad

Multidisciplinary Artist

Juliette Hadad is a multidisciplinary artist who is inspired by the beauty of our natural world.

She studied interior design and holds a BFA in graphic design and illustration. Her work spans many mediums, including logo design, oil painting, mosaics, and photography. She is pulled by the magnetism of the tropical rainforests, wildlife, and the rugged topography of her homeland Trinidad and Tobago. She also sings opera and dances hip-hop in her spare time…and would really like to give Sir David Attenborough a hug.
