Jill Ray has been a practising artist and designer for over 30 years. She trained first in Fine Art then followed a career as a Landscape Architect until 2012 when she launched Jill Ray Landscapes to combine her design and fine art skills in her unique style of digital printmaking.
She builds up her images digitally with fragments of shapes overlapping and overlaying often working on 70 or 80 layers to create the impact she strives for. Her work is driven by exploration of patterns and drama of the landscape and her main concerns are colour and rhythm and particularly the way sunlight interacts with the landscape taking an active role in the composition.
Jill is a member of both the Sheffield Printmakers and also Peak District Artisans and regularly exhibits with both.
