Testimonials & Awards

Jill is such a talented artist! She gets colors, textures, energy and she listens to what you are saying to her. In the past I have sold her work in my shop and I own 4 of her paintings. I never get tired of looking at them! We purchased a home in the spring and I wanted two large pieces of art for the parlor area.
I reached out to Jill with an idea, colors and a theme.  She nailed both pieces and we are thrilled! I get compliments on them and they make the entire room!

Lisa Hall, Owner, The Wedding Niche

As my husband and I were novices to commissioning art, Jill made the process seamless and transparent. She was incredibly easy to work with and extremely patient. She made our vision to come to life perfectly with the scene she developed and the colors she used. Her piece of art is the centerpiece of our living space and has given us a cohesive spa like feeling
