New years greetings 2024

To my dear family & friends - May your journey into 2024 be full of creativity, renewal and love // Chers Amis - Que votre voyage en 2024 soit placé sous le signe de la créativité, du renouveau et de l'amour.
Summer workshops in 2023 have been joy-filled, inspiring experiences shared with wonderfully creative, beautiful people. Grateful for each person who has taken the journey to paint with me in Provence. You have all climbed your own mountain within you and joined me in the dance.
This spring I set out on another journey from France to America, exhibiting my work in 9 different shows (Orlando, Amelia Island, Atlanta, Saint Simons Island, Chattanooga, Orlando & Columbus). I am so grateful for all of you whom I met at a show, workshop or talk and especially for my hosts and those who helped along the way.

Documentary —

Painting the Invisible is a full-length documentary film that follows American plein-air painter Jill Steenhuis as she navigates the landscapes of Provence in search of inspiration for her creative practice. Shot over a three-year span by the artist’s son James Ruffato, the film invites the viewer to enter into the quiet and intimate world of the artist’s prolific, creative and spiritual energy.
