Jillian Amatt's Profile
I was born in Banff and raised in Canmore, Alberta.. As a stubborn little girl, at the age of 12, I had already told my art teacher that I wasn’t an artist and that she (the teacher) “couldn’t make me draw!” No matter how hard the Art Teacher begged me to express myself, I had already decided in my head what an artist was, and I wasn’t it!
Fast forward 20 some years to 2006. A chance pottery class opened up the creative side of my brain, an lead me on an unexpected, and absolute wild ride through as many mediums as I could get my hands on. Drawing, Painting, Polymer Clay, Stained Glass, Decoupage, Mosaics, Fused Glass etc. etc. etc. My thirst to learn different art forms and techniques was insatiable.
