Jill Foster – Artist Profile

I was a beach kid of the 60s and my drawing has been influenced by the bright lively colours and “fun” lifestyle. Thrown functional clay pieces become my canvas, clay and brush my tools of trade. From a trip to France I observed the “cool style” of the French women and developed the “funky lady” decorated ware. Much overseas travel and a lasting interest in Japanese culture and brush painting filter into my very Australian themes. I design, make, photograph and teach in today’s Arts Industry.
