About Nicholas Juett

Back to Nicholas Juett home pageNicholas_Juett.html

Nicholas (James) Juett is a Cambridge-born artist who spent several years in the USA developing his vocation before returning to his home city in 2000.

His trademark style of bold brushstrokes and vibrant palette of oil colours has been applied to a variety of subjects but he is best known in Cambridge for his iconic views of streets and houses, and more recently his Cam bridge series.
