If any contemporary local artist holds a special place in the Cézanne landscape, it is certainly Jill Steenhuis.  Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Jill has been living and painting in Provence since 1980. Today, Jill continues to paint daily, either “en plein air” or in the light-filled studio of her country home, capturing the essence of Provence with her own personal poetry.

“For Jill, the echoes of Van Gogh and Cézanne are alive today and she translates these reverberations into her own sumptuously painted landscapes—loaded with fiery and vivid colors freely painted and infused with her own love of the Provençal sun.”
Michael E. Shapiro,
Director of the High Museum Atlanta, Georgia.
