A Water media and oil painter, Jillian creates concept related painting series about human existence and connection. Her work explores what it means to be part of the interconnectedness of life. Paintings convey personal insights and questions about her inner world, her immediate environment, and how its inhabitants relate. She appreciates that painting is a way to make a fleeting idea permanent and shared.

Jillian continues to develop a visual language that emphasizes colour and body fiction. She combines realistic observation with imagination to explore connections that bring life forms close and boundaries that keep them apart.

Jillian’s work seeks a benchmark of hope and genuineness and ultimately her aim is to discover and convey meaning.
