Meet Jill Tattersall – Mixed media artist

I’m Jill Tattersall, a Brighton-based mixed media artist.

To me art is much more than a mere indulgence, a pleasure or a hobby. It’s the stuff of life, a compulsion, a major reason for living. I’ve shown and sold my work all over Britain and further afield, recently becoming part of the Brighton Festival, renowned for its creative arts focus and popular Open House events.

It’s a joyous way to make a living, and I like to think the pleasure and playfulness involved in the creative process show through in every piece of work I make. Hard work nevertheless….

A lifetime’s passion for colour and texture

I live with and through colour, blending the abstract and figurative to make dreamlike, vivid images and patterns of the fascinating world around me, whether it’s a landscape, town scene, still life, piece of reality or something born wholly of my imagination.

I use paints, inks, dyes and pure pigments to build up subtle, intense, glowing tones, often using my own hand-cast cotton paper. I constantly experiment with materials and techniques, combining exciting reclaimed, recycled or found objects with pure pigments and precious gold and silver leaf.
