About Jill Feron
I am an abstract artist based out of my home studio in Hamilton, Massachusetts-a small town about 30 miles north of Boston. I live with my husband, three wonderful sons and two doggos, Monty and Stella.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been drawn to creativity. As a young lass I enjoyed drawing the most, but was up for just about any type of crafting, creating, or building.
I practiced art through high school and college and majored in art history. Following college, I took a job in NYC in the production department at a publishing house. It was here that I became drawn to graphic design. After a few courses and practice, I landed my first job as a junior graphic designer. I worked in graphic design for many years-mainly at publishing houses- and then on my own as a freelance graphic designer under the name Feron Design.
Then kids! Three of them. And my creativity changed to include materials such as glue, pasta, glitter, play-doh. All fun and all good. I fulfilled my creative outlet through home projects and a few art and craft classes here and there.
Once my boys were grown and some of my time freed up, I started drawing and painting with oils. For a while I sold pet portraits from my small Etsy shop and through word of mouth. I continued this for several years and then started to loose my spark. It wasn’t that I didn’t like what I was doing, I just wanted to have a bit MORE freedom to be creative in different ways. I dove into online classes and from this exploration I started to explore abstract art and this opened up a whole new world.
It all comes down to this-I have to create to be truly happy and full. When I do this, I'm at my best and I love to share this with you.
Art makes life interesting.
My goal is to bring this happiness and interest into your life. Thanks for visiting my website.
