Jill Perrott

Jill Perrott's professional journey as an artist started in the early nineties when her three children had flapped their wings and mostly flown the nest. Having studied art at Elam in the sixties, Jill re-energised her artistic abilities at Art Station workshops and Elam Summer schools, and began exhibiting locally with her first “real” show in 1997 at Titirangi's Lopdell House Community Gallery.

Jill’s early paintings concentrated on Auckland's west coast beaches where the Perrott’s spend much of their leisure time, tramping the coastline and staying at their Piha bach.  A recent exhibition, On to Otago, was built from images from many family holidays over many years to another favourite place, and captures another powerful and varied landscape.

Since 1997 Jill has won many awards and she has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand.  She has also travelled extensively throughout the country, photographing the landscape for potential paintings.
