English-major JILL GILL took one Watercolor course at the University of Connecticut, a Printmaking course at Parson's School of Design and a nine-day Pratt Institute Architectural Drawing workshop on-site in Rio de Janeiro. Despite all this, she developed her own whimsical, individual style.
JILL GILL has been commissioned to paint watercolor-and-ink portraits
of the homes, gardens and room interiors of, among others, Tina Brown,
Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, Linda Ellerbee, Drue Heinz, Charles Kuralt,
Pierre Matisse, Zubin Mehta, Anna Quindlen and Kurt Vonnegut. She is also
the author/illustrator of the beloved children's book Tiger & Leopard.
JILL GILL paintings and editorial coverage have appeared in The New York Times,
New York magazine, AVENUE, GQ, Country Inns, HG, Wine Spectator, Mimi Sheraton's
TASTE and Flea Market Style: Decorating with a Creative Edge. Her work has also been
in the publications and programs of the Merchants House Museum, Historic District Council,
Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, Landmark West!, James Beard Foundation,
Carnegie Hill Neighbors, National Museum of Women in the Arts anniversary magazine issue,
and the New York 67th Armory Antiques Show catalogue.
The artwork presented on this site is only a small sampling from this
prodigious artist; much of it is available for purchase.
