During this workshop, Jill will demonstrate how to lose your fears and make marks to express the
essence of the landscape.
Technical skills will be demonstrated with mixed media such as inks, charcoal powder, charcoal sticks and pastels to encourage confidence with these materials.

Jill grew up in the Sutherland Shire and loved to colour and draw as a child.  She developed a keen interest in the visual arts. 
She was accepted into the National Art School for the Graphic Design Diploma and then went on to complete a Diploma of Education which allowed her to teach.  Jill now lives in Port Macquarie and is a member of the Hastings Valley Fine Arts Association. 
Her practice has won many awards in both exhibitions and competitions across New South Wales for both oil and pastel. 
In 2016 she joined the Oatley 101 Society of Artists and won a major prize at the Waterbrook Exhibition for a pastel and further she was a finalist in the Oatley 101 2016 Annual Exhibition for an oil.
Jill's early influence came from Elioth Gruner's "Spring Frost" and Arthur Streeton's Impressionistic works. 
The strokes of light, colour and sensitivity in the Australian landscape and waterways have been the catalyst for her subject matter, appropriate medium and to take the viewer to a special place. 
Now retired from teaching art in schools Jill has built her own studio to tutor small groups, conduct workshops and travel with like-minded people to paint plein air.
