I experiment, problem-solve, and play by exploring the attributes of, and skills required for working with Clay, Wood, Fiber, and Metal. My work is heavily influenced by context within topics such as usefulness, symbolism, and intention. I am interested in exploring motivation for creative work as well as in artistic process. I hope that the work I produce will inspire thoughtful conversation (within self or with others) and assist someone on his or her path.
Jillian works with paper and pictures to make strong and inspiring collages. She also dabbles in clay forming interesting shapes and impressions which she brings together in unique pieces of jewelry.
