The rustling trees and glowing stars on a quiet night are Jillian’s favorite memories growing up in the country.  Born in 1978, she was raised in a small town in Minnesota.  Within a bedroom draped in rose-colored hues, Jillian created a world of anything unabashedly feminine.  She designed costumes and dresses, and found her voice through dance.  Letting herself free in a creative medium was where she belonged.  Jillian was a dreamer.


Studying French history and art history at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis and touring museums throughout Europe opened her eyes to Old World romance.  After college, working with different color palettes drew her to work in interior design for the following decade.  Evenings after work Jillian practiced drawing and realized art was her true calling.  She created watercolor illustrations and began receiving commissions from top design firms in New York to Los Angeles.  Shortly after an inspiring return trip to Europe, Jillian started painting on canvas, partnered with her first gallery and left her job to become a professional artist.

 “The studio is my place to capture timeless poetry of the past.  As I paint, I reflect on memories, stories and imagined scenes.  I get caught in an ethereal world as colors blend and gradually evolve into a picture.

The feminine spirit is illuminated through the lens of fashion with details of a gown once worn by a historical heroine.  Classical still life and portraits are given new breath with movement and vivid hues.  Color remains the soul of the painting - my smiles, sorrows, passions and whims.”
