“One of my happiest memories from childhood was staying with my grandparents for the weekend and catching the bus down to Brighton seafront. I was fascinated by the rows and rows of beach huts. When I moved to Wellington, I developed a similar fascination with the boatsheds near to my home, in particular those at Titahi Bay .Just as I had as a child, I wondered who were the people who used them and what was inside. The structure of the boatsheds is always the same but they are constantly changing whether through a new coat of paint or by the effects of nature around them.”

In the 2023 exhibition A Creative Friendship, Jill joined friends Fran Zukowksi and Lindsay Blakeley. “We all work individually, however, through sharing our work as it progresses, we support and encourage each other. We are all inspired by the landscapes near to our homes and feel a close connection to the nature that surrounds us. With this exhibition we have all returned to the subjects that we most love to paint and that reflect the connection between the three of us and our individual passions.”
