About the artist:

Jill is an award-winning artist based in Vancouver, Canada whose practice includes commissioned environmental and sculptural installations, and collaborative design team projects for public spaces across North America. Jill has a diverse education that includes Sculpture, Human Sciences and Architecture. Exploring hidden stories, systems, and qualities of a particular place, Jill searches for a unique spark of magic in every project she undertakes which she weaves into dynamic spatial artworks that create connections between people and between people and place through surprising moments of discovery, revelation and/or transformation. Jill’s process, rooted in the rigors of her diverse education, embraces a wide variety of scales and materials, often incorporating dynamic illumination at night and utilizing elements that alter with viewer perspective or transform through interaction with natural phenomena during the day.

This series available through collaboration and funding from a consortium; Spokane Falls Community College, Eastern Washington University and Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture. Additional funding for this series is provided through the generous support of the Sahlin Foundation.
