Jill Hudson - Sea Swim, Whitsand Bay
Oil on canvas 25 x 30cm
Jill Hudson is a graduate in Fine Art from Falmouth College of Art, and she continues to live and work in Cornwall.
During her degree, Jill studied for three months at the Accademia di Belli Arti in Venice, and continues to have a love of travelling - taking her paints with her wherever she goes. Central and southern America, including in 2005 taking the post of expedition artist in Chile with Raleigh International, is a favourite destination. She regularly sails in Cornwall and sometimes crews on traditional Pilot Cutters and many of her paintings come from these experiences.
Jill paints the world around her, sometimes what she imagines, but her art is about the landscape of life in all its forms - its fleetingness, its poetry, its loneliness, and its reality.
Jill's work can be seen in a number of galleries throughout the UK and always at the Byre Gallery.
