Jill is a self-taught painter with a love for the architecture and style of New England. Though now a studio painter, she has also worked extensively with photography. The viewer can see that influence in how she captures lighting and character in her intimate portraits of rural and coastal details of New England life. Jill is working deliberately with contrast and color to create pieces which engage the viewer and invite quiet nostalgia. Her work preserves moments of captured time, and the time she spends on her paintings is a meditation on each moment.
"I try find the vitality and diversity of the scene while focusing on the emotion of the work I am creating. I always make an effort to be open to new possibilities and innovative ways to create. My goal, if possible, is not remain at the same level all the time. "
