She also has one year of training in Psychology, Literature, and Writing, towards a Masters in Art Therapy.
Jill started work in Commercial Art at a time when big changes were in the wind. She learned how to draw and write old-school, and can even burn sticks to get a literal point across. Everything she knows, she learned from scratch. Nowadays, that stick becomes; digital, virtual, lightweight, and often includes programs such as: Adobe, Macromedia, Windows, Microsoft (Jill knows most if not all of the programs quite well). She understands many other SEO, graphic art, video, writing, converting, authoring, and programming systems, quite well. If there is a specific program you are wondering if she has familiarity with, please do not hesitate to ask her. Jill loves to study, and really likes to know how to operate programs that make your life easier, literally.
“It seems I have printing ink running through my veins. I adore the feel, smell, taste, look, and mental stimulation, of beautiful visual pieces. As I breathe, so is the innate desire to put forth beauty. I consider myself lucky to have richness of experiences that culminate in a creative bent which serves to enhance lives.”
