Jill Sykes (paintings)

In the artist’s own words: “I was born and raised in Los Angeles and completed my formal artist training at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles and the Academy of Art/Lone Mountain College in San Francisco.  I worked as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator in the fields of Film and Business Advertising, Animation and Educational Media, as well as designing and implementing countless corporate logos. Over time my work became focused on painting, and in the late 1990’s I enrolled at the Santa Monica School of Design, Art & Architecture. Ultimately this led to my current work in oils and printmaking – explorations of color, shape, movement and mood.”
