Jill's passion has been painting for many years. She has experimented with most media and enjoys working in oils, acrylics, mixed media and pastel which remains a firm favourite for the local woodland scenes she loves to paint. The coastal scenes of Italy often feature in her work, a fond reminder of family holidays. Jill tries to capture an essence of the place, finding the vibrant colours just irresistible.
Figurative work is a recent challenge and one that she is really enjoying, particularly trying to capture those childhood memories on canvas.
A love of painting has given Jill the opportunity to demonstrate and teach in and around the Buckinghamshire area. Knowing that she is helping others discover the pleasure that painting can bring is greatly rewarding. Jill regularly exhibits in the Three Counties and has had work selected by the SWA, the Society for Women Artists, and exhibited in the Mall Galleries.
Her involvement with Woburn Art Gallery and exhibiting her work is an exciting venture.
