Jill Martin was born in Massachusetts and has lived both on the East and West Coast, with a 13 year stay in the farmlands of British Columbia before moving to Arizona.
Her mother’s appreciation and enthusiasm for art and culture exposed Jill to wonderful artwork at an early age with her many visits to the galleries and museums of Washington DC and New York City.
Jill graduated with a BFA and MFA from the University of Arizona in Tucson and taught drawing in their architecture department for two years. She has been in numerous juried and invitational gallery shows and several museum shows. Her works appear in collections in Arizona, California and on the East Coast. Jill lives and works in Phoenix, Arizona with her cat, Kermit.
