Juliet Percival Medical

Juliet Percival Medical - illustrator

Juliet has first class degrees in Physiology from Edinburgh University, and Illustration from Falmouth College of Arts. Working from her studio in Durham, she is a medical and scientific illustrator who, in addition to communicating information precisely through her imagery, brings an individual and creative touch to every client’s project. Combining the anatomical knowledge she has from her training in physiology with a prodigious creative talent honed at Falmouth College of Arts, she offers a warmer aesthetic to what might otherwise be quite cold and clinical artwork.
Her talents don’t end with scientific imagery. Juliet is also in demand for her figurative and lifestyle pieces as well as portraits, and more general editorial and publishing contexts.


Each piece begins as a fluid and spontaneous graphite line work. The initial drawing is scanned in, sometimes with a subtle watercolour background, and coloured digitally using Photoshop’s brushes. The strength of the lines in the image can be adjusted to the client’s wishes.


Juliet’s work ranges from highly detailed and realistic watercolours to a much looser drawing style, usually with a soft, restrained colour palette. The spontaneity and personality brought by the hand of the artist makes her images more approachable and engaging than many textbook illustrations.

We have commissioned Juliet twice for artwork for our website and patient documentation. She has always been a pleasure to work with and her illustrations are superb. She is attentive and develops drafts in good time, before delivering the final images for approval on time and on budget. We have no hesitation in recommending her.
Mr Ahmed Ali-Khan FRCS (Plast) & Mrs Lisa Ali-Khan RGN, LASE MEDICAL LIMITED
Juliet worked with us on developing some drawn concepts for a new product launch. Her work was spot on in terms of what we were after, delivered on time and on budget and all beautifully drawn in her own style - exactly what we were after. The brief was a bit out of the ordinary but Juliet approached it with enthusiasm and professionalism and made some valuable contributions to the development of the idea. We will definitely be coming back to Juliet for future projects and have no hesitation in recommending her to others.
Mick Kelly - Director, Mercury Healthcare
We enjoyed working with Juliet immensely. She was wonderful to work throughout the process and she is extremely talented. We hope to work with her again in the future if another project comes up that’s a good match.

Juliet was an integral part of one of my proudest TV moments - when we made Anatomy for Beginners together.  She was as clever and talented off screen as she was on screen, lifting the programmes to a whole new level.  She was also an absolute joy to work with - and rightly - won a Royal Television Society award for her brilliant and innovative creations.  This was one of the simplest and most straightforward creative collaborations of my career and achieved, in my opinion, results that massively punched above their weight.
Nick Curwin - Chief Executive, The Garden Productions Ltd
It was a real pleasure to work with Juliet. Especially her cooperative thinking and her proactivity was very helpful during the process.
Harald ten Voorde - Senior Art Director, Ogilvy & Mather Düsseldorf GmbH
We commissioned Juliet after seeing her beautiful portfolio. We loved her soft, watercolour style and thought it would be perfect to illustrate the stages of pregnancy in a friendly, informal but accurate way, showing our new mums-to-be the changing shape of their body and their baby developing inside them.  We wanted something a bit more sensitive than the usual medical text-book airbrush images, also something more personal that a mum could relate to.  Juliet was a joy to work with creating images quickly and accurately, modifying expressions and positions fast without fuss.  The brief ran to time and budget and the team were very happy with the final set of illustrations all of which have now been published.
