A graduate of Falmouth College of Art, Jill lives and works in Cornwall.
Whatever her surroundings, they challenge her to translate them, the Cornish coast being no exception - the beauty of the sea is ever changing, holding the promise of freedom...or adventure. During her degree she studied for three months at the Accademia di Belli Arti, Venice.
Since then, she has been further afield to travel in Peru and Mexico, the Arctic - taking her paints with her. In 2005 she went to work as Expedition Artist with Raleigh International in Chile. In 2015 Jill worked on the first International Arts festival in Bhutan, creating a large processional willow sculpture. Travel, different cultures, working with wonderful people have all blended into inspiration for her artwork, and excitement about the world around her. She continues to try to capture beauty within her work, predominantly working in oils, but excited by different media, gold leaf, lino print, fresco. Her art is about the landscape of life in all its forms – it’s fleetingness, it’s poetry, it’s loneliness, and it’s reality.
