Jillian Amatt's Profile

About

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.

Throughout my life, I have constantly been attracted to patterns, texture and colour. As I have explored my artistic side, these three attributes have been part of all creations that I make. From the minute details in my fimo (polymer clay) work, to the stamped textures on my pottery, and the tiny intricate doodles (zentangles) that I draw, these three features are a constant.
I am constantly exploring new and different mediums, and my desire to try whatever I can get my hands on is insatiable. I search for constant inspirations through Pinterest, Instagram, Nature (of course!) and anywhere else I can get it.
I joined Etsy in 2009 when only 15 000 people had etsy shops. Along the way I sold bits and pieces on here, but I also opened my own gallery for 4 years in my town of Powell River, BC. Therefore, I left the Etsy world and focused solely on that. However, I AM BACK!
