PortfolioI have been a practicing Artist and Designer for over 25 years. I was born in Sheffield and returned to live here in my twenties. I trained first in fine art then followed a career as a Landscape Architect until 2012 when I launched Jill Ray Landscapes to combine my design and fine art skills.
Foundation at St Albans School of Art from 1974-5, where I spent most of my time in the life room with Quentin Crisp as a frequent model.
This was followed by 3 years at Falmouth School of Art resulting in a BA Hons Fine Art (Painting) in 1978 and a growing interest in landscape subjects.
Jill regularly exhibits with the Premier Artists at Sheffield’s ‘Art in the Gardens’ and takes part in ‘Open up Sheffield’ and the ‘Great Dome Art Fair’ in Buxton as well as showing at several print and craft fairs throughout the year. She also exhibits annually at the Spring Fair at the NEC (trade only).
