Jill Huxtable grew up in Lawrence, KS and has been making art since early childhood. She took advantage of the excellent art department in the school system there, and has won many awards over the years. After putting her artwork on the back burner while raising her children and working as a hairstylist, she has picked her art back up full time upon retirement. Since that time, she has shown in numerous galleries and art shows around the Kansas City area. She still takes advantage of the many art classes available and attends drawing workshops as her schedule permits. “Always a work in progress as is my life.” Being creative is not just a part of her core being but also a form of escape. She works with a variety of media including acrylics, oils, alkyd resins, alcohol inks, watercolors, pastels, colored pencil and ink. Her mixed media series is acrylic on canvas mixed media utilizing texture, torn printed tissue paper and found objects, with layers of translucent paint for depth and interest. Some of her latest works are alkyd resins or alcohol inks on ceramic and glass tiles and encaustic mixed media. Much of her artwork finds inspiration in nature and the beauty of the human form. The play of light and shadow captures her eye and is often expressed in her work.

“My art is something that emerges from within me, an inner desire to create and express myself.”

“I paint what I lack the words to express.”
