Jillian Hobson with 'Hybird'

Jillian Hobson was born in New Zealand and studied Fine Art at Auckland University's Elam School of Fine Arts. She graduated B.F.A in 2004 with a specialization in painting. She has since lived in the United Kingdom, the United States of America and Canada. Moving internationally has strengthened Jillian’s interest in the concept of interconnectedness and crossing boundaries of many types.

Jillian has recently moved permanently to Toronto, Canada and enjoys working from her new inner city studio. She stays informed through professional Canadian artist memberships – and involvement with her vibrant local arts community. Jillian has previously enjoyed an active art teaching practice in Western Canada; for the City and in her private teaching facility. Jillian exhibits regularly, and has completed public and private commissions internationally.
