Mixed Media Artwork
Jill’s two dimensional artwork combines watercolor, acrylic, thread and hand woven textiles. This work has been shown at galleries and juried art shows throughout Pittsburgh and New Orleans. Since 2016, Jill has also been displaying and selling her mixed media paintings at Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter. Her work focuses on abstracts with loose interpretations of subjects such as landscapes, architecture and woven fabrics. Her love of color and texture shine through each piece and are a connecting thread throughout the different series.
These handwoven wall hangings were created on a rigid heddle loom. Each weave is uniquely handcrafted and incorporates unconventional materials such as paper, wire, wood and metal.
Jill’s sculptures are part of an autobiographical series exploring distinct memories. A piece from this series was featured in the Louisiana Contemporary at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in 2019.
Jill’s accessories and home decor items are created from her line of proprietary textiles. She creates each fabric using her own paintings, photographs and digital art. Details of hand embroidery and hand dyed fabrics make each piece one of a kind. All work is created from start to finish by Jill in her home studio. This series of work has been shown at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and is carried at select local stores including The Historic New Orleans Collection and Home Malone.
Jill is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in New Orleans. She has a fine arts background with a concentration in painting and textiles. Her current practices include mixed media painting, sculpture, sewing and weaving.
