Art has the ability to bring a community together and strengthen the connection between its members. Art crosses all boundaries be they age, gender or nationality and provides a common ground where together we explore our creative expression and our diverse cultural backgrounds. Jill is available to consult on community projects so reach out and make contact so we can discuss your requirements.
