Hi, I’m jill. I’ve lived in Northern California, Spain, Boston, and now I find myself in Idaho. I love to make and do things. I am a little compulsive about everything I do. The more repetitive something is, the more I like it. As a kid and through college I was a competitive gymnast and from that grew a love of form, grace, figure, movement, and music. I love the graceful lines of the human body. I’ve always drawn and painted figures and have recently moved into painting portraits, and now I’m tackling landscapes. I studied at the University of California at Davis, where I earned an art studio degree with an emphasis in oil painting, and graduate teaching degrees in art and K-12 education. I am also a mother, wife, runner, and sometimes I clean my house.
With my sister. I’m on the right, not wearing orange. We ran this together (sort of together, she is faster than me).
And I’m a show off.
