I'm a professional artist based in the south east of England. I love bold, striking images and vibrant colour. I find endless inspiration in nature, people, animals and architecture.
I have an art studio at home and I love to sit in the peace and quiet and paint, where my soul can be still. I agree with Marc Chagall that "art must be an expression of love or it is nothing". My aim is to produce positive and inspirational paintings for you to enjoy.
I work in oils and my paintings are produced on canvas.
All paintings on traditional canvas and canvas board are provided in a complimentary handmade wooden frame so they're ready for you to hang. Paintings on deep edge canvas are sold unframed but fitted with picture wire, ready to hang.
My next solo exhibition will take place in 2021 - date to be confirmed.
To see more paintings coming soon to Saatchi Art, please visit my website https://www.jillannharper.com and select the 'Gallery' then 'New' tabs.
