Cooktown Fires

Description : In 2020, we travelled for the first time to Cooktown and as we approached the town we noticed some smoke in the distance. We headed up to a higher vantage point to get a handle on just how serious the fires were and we soon realised we could be in for an interesting visit. After a rather sleeepless night not knowing which way the wind would turn, we woke to find the wind had been in our favour. I wanted to record this trip by way of this painting, showing just how ferocious the fires were, even creating their own clouds.

A Fremantle artist, temporarily living in Brisbane. Born and raised in Perth Western Australia. Jill's passion for painting began at a very early age and whose abilities met with reward time and again throughout her school years being awarded Dux at two separate art institutions. Although events such as personal tragedy, raising a family, living as a volunteer worker interstate and overseas have punctuated Jill's life all such experiences have enriched her in one way or another allowing a deeper expression to manifest itself in her art.

Her love of watercolour has allowed a basis for creativity to develop and along with her appreciation for the Australian landscape and it's unique hues Jill's fascination with form and texture of both the animate and inanimate and the ever changing outcome colour and light can have on those elements continually inspires her.

It is Jill's hope and desire that her paintings are loved by others to the same degree as the enjoyment she derives from the creative journey on which each artwork takes her.
