Meet The Artist:
Jill was brought up in Freuchie, Fife with big dreams of becoming an artist; after leaving school she lived in Edinburgh where she began her very wonky career path. Through a number of art and theatre HNCs, HNDs and night classes she set out to discover what it was she loved to do before finally moving to Dundee in 1999 when she started at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, studying Interior and Environmental Design with the plan to go into theatre set design. While there though she turned back to her artist roots and in 2007 Graduated with a Masters in Fine Art.
Jill is fundamentally at her core an artist and has found creative ways to earn money through her many diverse skills, knowledge and experience including costume design and making for theatre and dance; wardrobe supervisor; co-founding a creative hub business; facilitating workshops and artist talks.
In recent months Jill has widened her creative practice to include writing and mentoring other artists to help shift and grow their perceptions of what they can achieve as creative people. She currently lives in Pitscottie, Fife with her 2 dogs, Barney and Pippa.
