San Anselmo, CA
I’ve always been passionate about art, and spent many years working at Waterworks Gallery in Friday Harbor, as well as the Robert Beck Gallery in San Anselmo. In 2005 was able to put that passion to work and have spent the years since painting, learning, and putting all of those years of observation to work. I would say the natural world is my muse and spend as much time as possible painting plein air. I do enjoy studio painting as well and am working on developing a series of conceptual paintings. I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by such a diverse environment in Marin County, home of so many talented artists, and endless painting possibilities.
In 2006 Jill decided to shift from her textile design business and turn to painting. She has won prizes at the San Juan County Fair, WA for her work in 2007 and 2008, and at the Marin County Fair in 2016. She has shown her work at The Robert Beck Gallery in San Anselmo, and is currently showing her work at Sidekick's in San Anselmo, CA. In 2014-2016 she participated in the Marin Open Studios, which was a great community experience. She has participated in two group shows at the Graton Gallery, CA in 2015 and 2016 and the STUDIO Gallery and Sweetie's Art Bar in 2016.
Jill has studied with Marsha McAllister in Friday Harbor, WA. and in the last few years taken several workshops with Marin County artist Timothy Horn and also Peggy Kroll Roberts.
