Jillian's paintings reflect a curious, intellectual approach to the process of making art. She constantly challenges the boundaries, searching for new ways to combine color, to create lively and intriguing surface texture, and to incorporate mixed media to express a mood or idea. Her mixed media collages reflect her love of language and her interest in historical allusion.
