Juliet Nneka is an award-winning visual artist who was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria — where she placed as the highest scoring candidate in the country for her year’s run of Cambridge International academic Art and Design.
Juliet's early memories of craft stretch as far back as childhood days spent sketching at home and between science lessons: meticulous organic details and life drawings of mundane objects, people, and nature fill her old sketchbooks. Her digital artwork found a place on the internet, where she was scouted as a talent for DC Comics - she has created cover work for household titles such as Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Nubia: Queen of the Amazons, and more. In 2022, she was announced as the Third Prize winner of the iCanvas Digital Art Award, courtesy of the Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize.
She is currently based in The Netherlands where she is completing her undergraduate education, and working as a talent in fashion represented by Ulla Models.
