Jill presents a nostalgic image of herself and her sisters in their early years. This reflection on a childhood memory allowed Jill to work through trauma caused by the loss of her sister to cancer. The process of applying acrylic and oils on slate experimenting with laying is addictive in its quality. This intensive approach acted as a therapy. In using monochrome palette Jill believes a greater connection is made with the viewer and reflects the nostalgic feelings being explored.
