The Book

Art Soul & Destiny
An Artist Journey from America to Provence

Jill Steenhuis invites readers to share her destiny by way of her images and writings, which communicate the unspoiled and seductive beauty of Provence and her spiritual, lifelong connection to Cézanne’s artistic genius. His beloved mountain, Mt. Ste. Victoire, overlooking the artist’s birthplace, Aix-en-Provence, became a figurative birthplace and home for Jill – a sacred site where her intellectual and artistic passion has grown to abundant fruition.

"To observe and contemplate Jill Steenhuis's art (and her words, for she is not only painter, but also poet) is to accept an invitation to be inspired by the timeless beauty of nature that she captures on canvas and in her writing. Returning to the pure and simple joy of daily things - of flowers and villages and budding trees - we taste and smell and feel the truth that is life. Jill is a magnificent artist in every sense of the word. Her work touches my soul."
