Jill Price

Individual Artist
Born in 1969, I am a Canadian painter, who grew up in Pickering, Ontario. In 1988, I moved to London, Ontario, to study Fine Arts at the University of Western Ontario, to receive instruction and mentoring from many nationally recognized artists such as Duncan De Kergommeaux, Sheila Butler, Wyn Geleynse, Colette Urban, Kim Moodie, Barbara Fischer and Helmut Becker. After schooling,I chose to remain in London and become an active member of its vibrant artistic community as an artist, arts writer (Scene Magazine), and arts administrator (Forest City Gallery, London Arts Council). Upon meeting my mother's birth mother; a painter residing near Syracuse, New York, I relinquished my arts administrative roles to become more focused on my own work, and so in 1992, along with Beth Stewart, opened up a co-op gallery in the Covent Garden Market called Axis Studios to facilitate my own creative production as well as assist other emerging London artists sell and showcase their work. In 2006, I attended Althouse College to attend Teacher's College and went on to complete my Visual Arts Specialist qualifications in 2009.For the last three years I taught visual and language arts at Matthews Hall Independent School, located in London, Ontario. As much as I inspire the students to find the artist within themselves, they have inspired me to follow my dreams to do what I love and to take the necessary risks to get there. Recently moved to Barrie, Ontario, I opened up my own studio in the downtown core. You will be able to find me working hard producing works for upcoming shows in 2011 and 2012. My work ranges in both materiality and techniques so that I can address topics of investigation in a visual way where the mediums become part of the message.
