Jill Oliver is a lifelong resident of the Kansas City area. After studying Art Education at Kansas State University, she returned to the Kansas City to begin her teaching career at Shawnee Mission East High School. After teaching art for 15 years, she left her job to stay home with her kids and to focus on painting.
Offering a wide range of subject matter, ranging from portraits to landscapes, Jill enjoys working on large canvasses because of the impact a large painting creates. Compositions with strong, dramatic light and shadows and interesting textures are a reoccurring theme in Jill’s work.
Inspiration comes from the ability to capture a beautiful image, or a special moment.
Working primarily with oil on canvas, Jill Oliver is available for commission work.
