Jill holds MA and MFA degrees in painting and drawing, but enthusiastically embraces a variety of media to help her explore themes related to natural history and an off-jolly take on storytelling. These days, Jill is often in her studio making jewelry. All media are fair game, including: glass, enamel, polymer, resin, metals, wire, beeswax, and more. Borrowing from her background in painting, printmaking, and book arts, Jill makes wearable pieces that pair traditional materials with not-so-conventional materials.
