VIEW WORKS | BIOGRAPHY 

Jill’s beautifully modulated paintings are highly sought after by collectors. She captures the likeness of objects without slavish description often incorporating a trademark stripe in to her work. Jill watches the the passage of light on her subject throughout the day to capture their essential character. Her new collection of still life paintings featuring daffodils, apples and jugs of foliage radiate colour and light.

Jill was taught by Euan Uglow, Patrick George and William Coldstream at the Slade School of Fine Art and their influence can be felt in her work. She then spent several years painting in France, Spain and Italy, and is now based in rural Cambridgeshire. She has exhibited extensively in London and the UK, and her paintings have been selected on several occasions for ‘critic’s choice’ exhibitions. Her work has been sold through Christie’s of London contemporary art sales and features in a number of important corporate collections.
