Jill Segal is an award winning professional artist and an accomplished art teacher. She conducts demonstrations, classes and workshops, in acrylic painting, collage and a combination of yoga and painting, for numerous art associations and educational institutions, locally and internationally. She has co-facilitated many workshops on spirituality and creativity. Jill lives in Toronto, Canada and spends the winter in Naples Florida.
Jill’s acrylic and mixed media paintings portray her delight in and reverence for the natural beauty of the world . They express her belief in the sacredness of nature, the inherent energy in and around us and the interconnectedness of all things.
She works intuitively with a variety of media without a conscious image of the end result. She applies colour and materials boldly, often scraping and imprinting textures into the painting. The final abstract work evolves by adding and subtracting many layers of transparent paint, acrylic mediums and collage materials.
Painting is my passion and my form of self expression. My abstracted acrylic and mixed media paintings portray my delight in and reverence for the natural beauty of the world around me. They express my belief in the Sacredness of nature, the inherent energy in and around us and the interconnectedness of all life.
