Hi and thank you for visiting my site. Having loved art at school, but without direction, I pursued a career in Banking, however now later on in life, I have the opportunity and drive to pick up the mantle.
My work is contemporary in style, quite graphic at times, I am still experimenting, I am in love with colour and texture, and have been told that sometimes my work resembles textile design. I like to have fun and don’t take myself too seriously, and I like to think this shows in my work.
At the moment I am obsessed with seedheads and flowers, sometimes representational, sometimes abstract, I work in Pastels, oils, acrylics and mixed media.
If you have time why not visit my Facebook page simply jill crowther ART, I have exhibited regularly at the Church Lane Gallery Banbury, and the Chipping Norton Peoples gallery at the CN Health Centre, However pastures new and i have recently moved to Herefordshire, and had a very successful H.art.
