Finally a coherent "about" and artist statement
I'm now quite happy (!) with the biographical information you can find at my about & CV tab – or you can read it here:
Inspired by rural customs – contemporary and older – local stories as well as the industry of the Ottawa Valley textile mills in the last century, Jill's work is colourful, lively and may incorporate a surprising anecdote.
Artist's statement: My work is animated by informal subjects and common practices, but offers imaginative twists for the observer to consider. I believe even the most seemingly simple ideas are not. They can be inspiring, they can be demanding, and always they suggest a different point of view.
Jill is so pleased to have sold her first painting, Gertrude's Chair, to Juan Geuer, international scientist/artist and good friend. Jill's series of clothes flying from laundry lines – in wide-open landscapes or local spaces – continues, but many different works are "in-the-works".
