Professional, Fun & Cheerful
I have been attending classes at The Studio for the past ten years. I have really enjoyed my art classes at The Studio. Jill (the instructor) is great at helping you troubleshoot without taking over your painting. When I finish a piece, I feel like it is a picture I painted with Jill’s help, rather than feeling like my instructor painted it for me. Jill and Nadine do an excellent job of running The Studio. Everything is professional while still maintaining a fun and cheerful atmosphere. I would definitely recommend The Studio to anybody for art lessons.
Creative & Encouraging
Jill at The Studio provides a creative and encouraging environment for both my son and I. She allows us to explore and develop our art skills. She could lend herself to both the beginner and the lost artist, helping both to blossom.

Terrific Learning Environment
I have known Jill for about 15 years and have been taking art classes conducted by her for over 10 years. She is a remarkable lady, a marvelous artist, and wonderful teacher and mentor. She has quite a knack for challenging her students to “get yourself into trouble” and then helping them work their way out.
It has been a terrific learning environment. Her visual acuity for subtle colour variations is remarkable. I continue to strive to learn to see colour the way Jill can, and the ways she helps me learn to see tonal depth; those light mediums and dark tones, that I have always struggled to widen in my work.
Her talents cross so many art styles and media and no doubt this has led to her great success in developing the skills of so many artists, young and old.
A pretty fine sense of humour, and so very patient too! She puts up with me, after all!
