Jill retired in 2018 after 35 years of teaching art, including 18 years tenure as a fine arts department chair. She has been an artist her entire life, always engaged in channeling her emotional landscape into her art. Jill's primary area of interest is in combining sculpture, printmaking and the human form. She is fascinated by transferring all kinds of images onto clay forms.
Jill fell in love with New Mexico 22 years ago during her first encounter with the area. She instantly thought, "I could live here" and now lives full-time in Taos. "I have the pure desire to devote most of my time to communicating through my work.”
