Happy New Year 2020

Jill sends her warmest greetings for 2020 as she enters her 40th year of living in Provence. She reflects on her artistic pilgrimmage and life journey as an American living in France. She also shares some of the highlights of the past year and mentions some of her upcoming events in 2020.

East Coast Tour – Fall 2019

Jill, Sergio and crew swept through New England and made their way down South on their most recent tour. The tour included several art shows, talks and workshops, a documentary screening preview on Jill, and a plein air art competition.

Happy New Year 2019

As the New Year begins, I wish you all a year of renewal and time to be silent, time to go outside and to walk to restore your spirit. The question is not “How can I be happy?” but rather “How can I be free?”
