About Jill

Jill is a multidisciplinary artist currently living and working in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Jill earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a concentration in Painting from the State University of New York at Oswego, located near her home town of Syracuse, New York.  Her work includes mixed media painting, sculpture, weaving and sewing.

Jill has shown her artwork at locations throughout Pittsburgh and New Orleans with a focus on galleries and juried art shows.  Her work has been shown at numerous art festivals including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Jill’s work is sold at select local stores including The Historic New Orleans Collection and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.

Since 2016, Jill has been displaying and selling her mixed media paintings at Jackson Square in the heart of the French Quarter.  Her most recent series consists of watercolor paintings on paper layered with sewing. Jill’s work is primarily abstract 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 her different series. 

Most recently in 2019, Jill revisited her love of sculpture.  In this practice she creates hand woven textiles that feature unconventional materials and pairs them with altered found objects. Jill translates autobiographical stories and memories into powerful and thought provoking pieces.  This new series debuted with a piece in the Louisiana Contemporary at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
