  1. Hi Jill,
    I had painting lessons that you instructed several years ago at the Shelton community center in Huntington. I also did a workshop with you. Do you have any classes that my daughter and I could attend? If so what times and the cost… I would like to give some classes to my 25 daughter for a Christmas gift.
    Thank you

  2. Dear Jill,
    Sending a reminder to submit via Slideroom three artworks for Fall MFA exhibition at VPAC gallery space. I am beginning to contact all past MFA graduates. My class was 2002. Lori Ribeau is collecting the submissions and Eileen Coladarci. I joined the Western Alumni Board last year – and hope to generate grant opportunities for MFA graduates of WCSU in the future. Very impressive work – seascapes make me want to run to Massachusetts now – I moved home to Connecticut eight years ago. Miss the coastline.

  3. Jill, old friend, I am crazy about your new piece, Cuprous Luna, and would love to own it. I commented on Facebook but hope you see this before it gets snatched away. Please let me know details.
