Jillian is a contemporary figurative painter who uses Acrylics, Encaustic, and Oils to paint in. The goal is to always be focused on the study of women in their everyday lives. To learn and peek inside these secret moments. But also have a full understanding of how powerful the woman’s body is. The small creative community of Sisters, Oregon encourages the arts as part of your everyday life, even at a young age. Growing up in this community helped to mold and shape the artist that Jillian is today. She received a BA in Film and Media at the University of California Ir-vine. Currently living in Dallas, Texas where she believes that art in the home is key to the happi-ness of the home. When she isn’t painting, Jillian can be found watching Formula 1, playing golf, or enjoying the outdoors.
We need the “womb” of mother earth and the energies of the earth as our umbilical cord. Provid-ing us with the nutrition and life support we need to survive. Even in the womb there will be rough and dark times. Times when we try and break free before we are ready. Thinking we don’t need the womb to survive. There is that fine line of leaving the womb too early and still surviving and waiting until we are done growing to venture out on our own.
