Juliet Ehrlich, a 60 year old native of New York, began her career at seventeen in New Zealand with an apprenticeship under Dutch Master, potter, Melis Van der Sluis.
A self taught sculptor, Juliet's work spans 43 years and 6 continents.
Her wall-hung, bas-relief clay murals, comprised of kiln-fired tile are characterized as both sculpture and painting at once.
Ehrlich's interest in anthropology and historic architecture mark her work with tremendous diversity. It has become her trademark. Her style ranges from figurative, to impressionistic, to contemporary, to classical.
Juliet has lived for extended periods in Indonesia, Turkey, New Zealand, and Italy, where she maintained a gallery selling her work exclusively. She has traveled to Hong Kong, France, Singapore, Thailand, Greece, Germany, and Australia.
She has taught, both here and over seas, and been invited to lecture on "The Art of Business: introducing broad, compelling eastern perspective to successful endeavor".
Her work is in private and permanent collections world wide.
"Having found the medium of clay to be boundless in it's capabilities, I have felt enjoined by the material itself to explore limitless expression.
The diversity is born of my interior worlds - travel, historic architecture, landscape and anthropology. Ultimately however, what informs each sculpted bas-relief most strongly is a poetic perspective; a romantic wash that I brush upon them all, and all those who view them".
"The pieces on view exert the exotic charm so prized by the Headley- Witney Museum"
THE COURIER JOURNAL
"Her pieces combine technical skill, an artist"s draughtsmanship and an art historian"s or anthropologist"s research."
SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE
"Juliet is a wizard! The piece she did for us has had a sensational response"

"Such is her talent that she can produce a replica of a rough textured primitive cave painting from along the Nile as easily as she can recreate the delicacy and sophistication of a Japanese brush drawing on rice paper"
