Meet Jill Tattersall – Mixed media artist
I’m Jill Tattersall, a Brighton-based mixed media artist.
To me art is much more than an indulgence, a pleasure or a hobby. It’s the stuff of everyday life, a compulsion, a major reason for getting up in the morning. I’ve shown and sold my work all over Britain and further afield, most recently taking part in the Brighton Festival, renowned for its creative arts focus and popular Open House events.
It’s a challenging way to make a living, but I like to think the pleasure, experiment and sense of adventure involved in the creative process show through in the work I make.
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 world around me, whether it’s a landscape, abstract scene, still life, piece of reality or something born wholly of my imagination. Medieval manuscripts, human origins, surfaces, plants, mazes, natural patterns and many other things fascinate me.
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 reclaimed, recycled or found objects with pure pigments and precious gold and silver leaf.

Buy original art
I work from my Hove studio, The Wolf at the Door, where I think about and create a stream of new pieces for enthusiasts and customers to explore and enjoy. If you’d like to commission, buy, rent, test-hang, exhibit, discuss or view my art in person, I’ll be delighted to meet you. Please feel free to contact me.
