Juliette van Bavel is a dedicated artist. She entered the academy of classical ballet at age 13 and danced professionally till 1998.
At the Royal Academy of Arts – were she enrolled in 3D work – Juliette felt a strong preference for harder materials such as stone and metal. She specialized in the crafts and continues to work with them up to this day. Creating large (kinetic) aluminum sculptures.
Writing she did since early childhood. Having a good sparring partner in her father, who was dedicated to literature and ethnology. While her mother (conductor & soloist singer) taught her to read and play music as of age 3. So Juliette spend the years throughout her childhood in weekly ballet classes, choirs and orchestra’s. In her free time drawing, reading, building wooden huts and creating plays with old dresses from great-grandmothers.
After her dancing carrier she was plunged into IT to support her art and it turned out to be a match. She held part-time positions for 10 years, varying from International Helpdesk Agent, Software tester and Webmaster. She worked at IBM, Aegon, ANWB, Ediport and IIAV .
As this moment she is dedicated fully to Fine Arts and Poetry.
