Abstract

Jill is inspired by the landscape of the North East and most of her work is based on an ancient mining landscape called Cockfield Fell where she walks nearly every day. Her atmospheric paintings are a result of her exploration of the interplay between what is seen and what is felt about the landscape. She uses elements of what she sees and combines these with her imagination to create her paintings. She is fascinated by the Fell’s strange, other-worldly, abstract shapes defined by the morning shadows and framed by big dramatic skies. Its pools, pathways, mounds, dips and curves are her motifs. She decides which shapes and colours to play with, then draws and applies layers of paint, using loose gestural marks until she finds a balance and a painterly world emerges which celebrates this landscape. In 2014 Jill graduated from Sunderland University with a first class degree in fine art and has since exhibited throughout the UK, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists Prize Exhibition, the Ferens Open and the New Light Art Prize.
