Jill Schwennsen is a multi-talented artist who uses a variety of mediums to showcase her photography and dot paintings.

Having undergone open heart surgery at 9 days old and age 15, Jill has danced with a knowing that she may die at a young age. This contributes to her desire to soak up as much beauty as possible, and to just be present.

Artist Statement

Art is a means of sharing and capturing fleeting moments of inspiration & beauty. My art is an affirmation and celebration of life. I choose photographic papers and mediums that add another dimension and give more life to an image. I extract inspiration from experiencing life & what each moment has to offer, often noticing & being aware of the small details that contribute to a scene. Beauty is everywhere, one simply has to look up to see and experience it. Everything, including the way one chooses to live life, is art. How do you choose to color the canvas of your life?
