Jill Millward (oil paints)

portrait_millward“I am interested in representing with paint what I see, feel, and hear.  My work represents a love of color, form, texture, and light in both figurative work and landscapes.  I was a competitive gymnast growing up and from that grew an awareness of figure, movement, and music.  I love the graceful lines of the human body.  Painting the expressions of body language and the subtle differences among us that make individuals brings me joy. I am trying to learn how to paint only what is necessary to express the essence or feel of an object, person, landscape, or mood.”
