Welcome to Jill Gartland Studios! This site features original art by Jill Gartland of Boulder, Colorado.
I am painting! Yes, after spending many years teaching young artists in my community, a true privilege, I now have the time to be both an artist and an art educator. During the last several years, I have been studying with local professional artists while exploring my own style, techniques and composition. My focus has been primarily capturing wildlife, landscapes and family pets with oils on canvas. Currently, I am working in a larger, cropped format with an emphasis on color and expression which is an exciting challenge!
My hometown of Boulder, Colorado, provides endless sources of artistic inspiration. When I’m not painting, I enjoy anything outdoors hiking, cycling, and gardening in the summer and more hiking and skiing in the winter. Travels to wonderful places throughout the world have also provided rich references from which to paint on the road and back home in my studio.
