Spring Arrivals 2021 – Jill Matthews

As with anything, art is a process, and my recent work represents how it has evolved. One of the hardest things as an artist is to find a voice in your work. I spent a long time focusing on replicating things that I saw rather than truly seeing them through an artistic eye.
