Jill Eisele is a Cornwall artist that loves to paint in oils. Jill says "I am always trying to use it in different ways…thin, thick, with collage or with sand and raw pigment. Paintings are typically on Canvas, but some are on paper and therefore under glass. Colour is enormously important, and I hope all my pieces resonate in some colourful way. I always have several pieces on the go at any one time. Paintings are finished when they say something beyond the obvious".
Having painted and drawn for most of her life, She has been influenced by countless artists. such as Barbara Rae, Gerhard Richter, Antoni Tàpies, Jennifer Durrant, Andrew Hardwick, Sax Impey, Patrick Heron, Christopher Wood, Peter Doig.
