JILL MCLEAN

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST PAINTER

Create Life … this is my constant light and guiding principal, my True North, the golden thread that was woven into me long before I was even a tiny spark.

In my ongoing dialogue with Creation, there is a seed of life sprinkled into all I am, all my mind ponders, the things my hands have the privilege to make. Leaving behind the culture of death in the deepest furrows of that which does not last, I seek instead to regenerate in my own beautiful way, my own time, and with the mission of illuminating these things within others.

Color, movement, energy … these unify to capture the fullness and gratitude I experience each and every day. They are the words written upon my heart, the perfection of hope without measure, the true love story between myself and Life.

Jill McLean, 2018
