Rome wasn't built in a day
In 2008 I first exhibited some artwork. Encouraged, I began photographing (an art form in itself) all of my art that I could get my hands on. At the end of 2009 I built the first version of this website, redesigning it in January 2011 to fit the volume of work. Around 70 new artworks including 6 completed commissions were added.
During 2011 I polished my first (200 page) publication for some years, adding lots of images: Jill Austin, Art2Enchant Portfolio; the first 10 years. This features descriptions, poems, techniques, materials, sizes and some glaze recipes. After the main art chapter there are sections on the artist's journey and on the special work I do infusing art with natural healing. Available from 4 Buyers, Patrons pages, £25.
I do not place my work with retailers but exhibit from time to time. I will be showcasing my new tree designs at Morley in Autumn 2011 and adding them to the website in December. Top right is preview of one of the new designs ...
