With a focus on color and technique, Jill explores many mediums including watercolor, oil and pen and ink. She strives to represent realism in her watercolors and employs a looser impressionistic style in oil. Pen and Ink is all about the details and sometimes take many, many hours.
Dog portraits are her specialty and passion. She captures the spirit and personality of each dog through color, detail, and brushwork. She welcomes privates commissions and her pet portraits make meaningful gifts. Her dog portraits in watercolor are realistic and detailed, while her dog portraits in oil are loose and whimsical.
Trying to capture the transparency and delicacy of flowers in watercolor is her goal. The variety and imperfections found in natural subjects are what drives her painting.
She has been exploring various pen and ink techniques and also linocut prints. Other creative interests include needle felting and embroidery.
