Jill is an accomplished artist, with an established, profitable commissioned art business and numerous awards to her name. She has been named Loudoun’s Favorite Artist and has deep roots in Northern Virginia’s business and art communities.
Jill has always been a creative person but did not truly take her potential in painting to the next level until 2007, after accompanying her father to art therapy. She took the leap and left behind a 25-year career in sales and business marketing to become a full-time artist. Today, her business has expanded to offer color consulting, art-based team building events, art arrangement and creativity coaching in addition to commissioned pieces.
Jill’s philosophy is that our cups are not half empty or half full – but instead they are overflowing and often we simply fail to recognize it. By harnessing our inner creativity, she believes we can break free of preconceptions and old habits or mindsets, embrace the present, express gratitude, and re-energize the everyday.
Climbing the ladder to recognition in the art world is a challenge for any artist. You definitely have an ability to see things that other artists have taken years of classroom experience to develop. That ability is what that holds the most potential for you! I would LOVE to see your artwork in NYC or greater markets someday!
Art touches the soul... art is communication. It reaches out from the canvas and passes through the eyes of the viewer right into his heart where it can leave an imprint of beauty that can make the spirit sing. Thank you for visiting. Jill Perla
