Jill discovered a love for painting during childhood summers spent at Lake Memphremagog in Quebec. While pursuing careers in architecture and teaching, she continued to make art and participated in exhibitions in Quebec, Australia and Ontario.

A key source of inspiration for Jill is the natural world – the forces of nature that shape the land and populate the sky, the microcosms found in gardens and forests, and the ever-changing environment. She works mainly in watercolour and acrylics, and her artwork includes landscapes, still life and abstract art.
