Born in 1942, Jill has always loved sketching and painting as a hobby. Attempting to capture the beauty and expressions of people and animals is an irresistable challenge. Sketch pad and pencils are always close at hand. A summer's day out in the countryside and the pages of the sketch pad take on pretty cottages and villages set by streams. Autumn brings her own pleading to capture the magic of carpets of russet leaves in watercolour - a very absorbing hobby.
