"She has impeccable taste in music, wears leather pants and has a bit of a caffeine addiction. This lovely lady goes by the name of Juliet Maria Rose Burton and she's a super clever illustrator come graphic designer. Her work is reminiscent of Chuck Close with infinite detail and realistic colour palettes. Ju's talent has varied from designing tattoos and surfboard art to drawing wall size faces with chalk and turning ordinary photos into absolute beauty.
What fills your days?
I work as a graphic designer at a product design consultancy called Procreate in Auckland. My days are filled with laughter ( I am the only girl in a studio of very entertaining guys) Excitement (I am working on a few projects which are top secret) And lots of caffeine of course.
Where do you find inspiration?
I find a lot of inspiration in photography.
You do you look up to?
My two older brothers. One who else happens to be my boss and extremely talented. The other happens to be 30 going on 16 and is the only person who can make me cry from laughter.
Grass or concrete?
At what age did you start drawing?
I started drawing when I was about 10. I genuinely was the worst person in the class. I loved it so much that I just kept at it and I guess practice makes perfect?
What is your favourite subject to illustrate?
I love drawing really weird looking people. Wrinkles, moles, warts, hairs. The works.
What is the latest project you worked on?
The last illustration I did was for the recent issue of Remix magazine. I did a portrait of Bret MacKenzie promoting his new movie 'Two Little Boys'. I pretty much had an overnight deadline but honestly had a lot of fun doing it!
Tell us something not many people know about you?
Nothing grinds my gears more than a single shot flat white.
Where do you hope to be in 5 years?
Hopefully still doing what I do. I feel so lucky to love my job?
Would you rather live in a tree hut or on a boat?
Tree hut - Up in a sweet pine. Collecting nuts etc. "
