Hi! I'm Juliet.

Juliet Meeks Design is an art and surface design studio founded in 2015. I'm based in my hometown of New Orleans, a vibrant southern city with history and color inspiration all around. 


I'm inspired by creating with my hands, vintage textiles, and the organic shapes of nature. You'll find me most days in my studio, along with my pup Roxy. 

" I've always been drawn to colorful patterns, and seeing my very own designs come to life on home decor, textiles, and more, is a dream come true."

I've had the pleasure of collaborating with a variety of brands to create beautiful products you can use in your home. I also have my own online shop where you will find original art, prints, and more. Are you a fellow artist? I teach online classes for how to run an art business and share free resources on my blog!

Why I Love It

Every day I am grateful to have built a career surrounding my art. I love being creative not only with my hands through painting, but with how I evolve and shape my business. Running a creative business isn't without its challenges, but I truly enjoy the process and the possibilities it creates in my life. 

What I Do

my hometown NEW ORLEANS

vintage textiles + prints


This city is filled with so much inspiration, I don't know if I could leave! Unless it means moving to Italy ;) 

The patterns and color palettes of vintage and antique fabrics are fascinating to me. I love to create designs with a nod to nostalgia, yet with a fresh, modern feel. 

A few of my favorite visual artists who have inspired me along my journey are Vera Neumann, Sonia Delaunay, Alma Thomas, and Helen Frankenthaler. 

What inspires me!

A look back on the past decade

First officially registered my business while in college! I sold handmade goods at local art markets.


Graduated from college, and over the next year worked as an intern at two graphic design and branding agencies in New Orleans, plus a few months working at a restaurant (including as a bartender, which if you know me - I'm an introvert! - is pretty funny).


I was hired full-time as a graphic designer at a local newspaper. Kept up my side-gig of branding design for clients.


Took a business plan class in the evenings after work and began experimenting with painting more. Started planning and saving to leave my job and pursue a creative business full-time.


This was the year I took the leap and left my full-time graphic designer job. A year full of self-doubt, getting my bearings as a business owner, and lots of (slow) growth. Started the 100 Day project, painting a watercolor pattern every day. Licensed my very first artwork!


Finished the 100 Day Project and launched my online shop! My art was shared by Design*Sponge and A Beautiful Mess and licensing clients continued coming in. Taught my first Skillshare class!


This was another eventful year. Got engaged! Continued working with new licensing clients including Birchbox and more. Expanded my shop and continued to develop my style.


My first fabric collection was released! Got married! Taught my first live watercolor workshops at Minted's conference in Las Vegas to over 100 artists. Painted my first set of ornaments.


Wrote my first art business resource, The Art Licensing Guide. Started developing the material into a video course which became Licensing for Artists! Moved into my new studio. Started painting larger acrylic paintings. Collaborated with Anthropologie.


Taught Licensing for Artists online during the pandemic to artists all over the world. Continued painting and working with new clients!


Continuing to dream up new ideas for the years to come. Working on painting in a new abstract style in addition to my signature florals. Teaching students all over the world.


early years: handmade jewelry!
