About the Artist: Jill Storey has been fascinated by the way things come to life on paper since she was a small child.
“One of my favorite memories from when I was very young is my mother drawing paper dolls for me. She would draw beautiful princesses in pen or pencil and cut them out, and I would play with them until they disintegrated. Her imagination sparked my own.”
As Jill developed as an artist, she experimented with many different mediums but always found herself returning to drawing. She spent several years creating works in graphite, primarily portraits, and then she discovered pastels.
“I love working in pastel. It’s my favorite medium because the colors are so rich and I can make so many different kinds of line with a single stick. I can cover a lot of ground quickly and loosely or draw in minute detail. And there are no brushes to clean!”
