Jill Winstanley is a self-taught oil painter, resides in Sooke, BC, Canada. Being born and raised on Vancouver Island has definitely inspired her creativity and her appreciation of nature on the West Coast.
As long as nature keeps springing forth with such vibrant beauty, I will never have a lack of inspiration . It is not my intent to “make a statement” with my art. I paint what I see and it is the feeling from the moment that I try to transfer to the canvas. I am truly in awe every day at the delicate balance between the plants and various insects that frequent my gardens. And the force of nature that is always prominent on the coast fixes me with its beauty. If I can capture a wee bit of that activity on canvas, I feel I have achieved my goal.
