Educated in Quebec, Canada and a year of study at The Sorbonne, Paris. Jill immersed herself in museums and galleries soaking in art and history of Europe. She followed in her grandmother’s and aunt’s footsteps – both exhibited artists in Montreal. Jill’s command of the positive and exuberance of life is evident through a romanced fairytale interpretation of her home surroundings and travels to Italy, France, Ireland, India and Tibet. She was deeply influenced by Marc Chagall. Her whimsy has a depth that resonates at a soul level. Home, a small island off the west coast of Canada, Salt Spring Island, feeds her reverence with nature. Her medium is watercolour, gouache, oil, and a mixed media of gold leaf, fabric, and pen and ink.
