Jill Simkins: Mosaics
September 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
In this hands-on demonstration you will learn the easy process of using bits and pieces of glass, broken plates, or small objects to create an interesting, textured piece of art.
Bring a sturdy 8 x 10 wooden picture frame, old dishes, or other use-able ceramic and plastic items, a hammer, an old kitchen knife, a couple of small plastic containers with lids, safety glasses and rubber gloves.
Jill is an Organic Vegetable Farmer who creates art in many mediums; weather it be with plants and flowers, magical garden paths, oil or water-color paint, clay, or by using recycled, found or worn out items.
Living her life working outside in the soil and discovering this beautiful world by hiking, backpacking, catering horse-pack trips in the High Uintah’s, river rafting, or camping in her vintage trailer, has given her a great respect and love for the outdoors which she attempts to capture on canvas. She especially enjoys painting cows, farm animals, and people. Her work has been sold in several gallery’s throughout the west.
She writes about her painting and adventures here.
