Watercolour Artist with Studio/Gallery at Cooks Beach
Jill attempts to capture in her paintings the inherent space and isolation of New Zealand's beauty, preserving the personal, and sometimes divine impressions of the solitude, tranquillity and magic of the Coromandel experience. She does not restrict herself to particular subject matter but paints mostly landscapes and seascapes of the Coromandel Peninsula; reflecting the views and imagination of the artist who becomes the consciousness of this enchanted land.
Jill has returned to her native New Zealand after spending thirty years in California sculpturing, potting, painting and teaching art. The last three years she has painted for the Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California. Her work is found in commercial and private collections throughout the world. She is presently teaching and selling through her own Studio/Gallery in Cooks Beach.
