(Watercolor and Pastel)
| Jill focuses on both portraiture and landscape, working in drawing, pastel and oil painting techniques. She has woven a narrative content into her portraiture and landscape imagery. Once she obtains her idea she works from drawings, oil sketches, memory, photographs, and imagination using traditional compositional devices and materials. Among her numerous awards she is a 1997 recipient of the Percy Owens Memorial Award for a Distinguished Pennsylvania Artist, from the Fellowship of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, and a 1976 William Emlen Cresson Memorial Travel Scholarship from PAFA. Her work is represented by Cerulean Arts Gallery and Studio in Philadelphia, PA.
