|The Artist adores soaking in images, letting them mix with her own emotions, and then expressing back a glorious work of art. She puts her full passion into her work, and is pleased when all that investment of time and energy can lift someone's spirits.
A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., the Artist has portraits in collections all throughout the region. Jill-Ann's passion in Art began early in life and continues with each day. Art teachers and friends recognized her natural gift and encouraged her. Today she continues to evolve as an Artist and finds deep pleasure in the creation process of Art.
Cherofsky appreciates feedback and criticism. She feels that the fresh perspective helps her evolve as an Artist. She describes her personal style as "right at the verge of realism, yet impressionist enough that you enjoy it as a painting." She loves the sense of excitement that her work can evoke in another person.
Jill-Ann takes pleasure in experimenting with different mediums to expand her work in unexpected ways. Presently she favors graphite and pastel. Sensual colors, romance and texture are primary in her works. Her choices of simple subject matter give an old world charm and are full of emotion. She has exhibited in national juried art shows, where she has won awards. Her work is exhibited in Limner Gallery and the Alliance of Queens Artists, both in New York, and is in other collections across the United States.
The Artist divides her time between doing drawings and paintings and enjoys both. She would love to hear from you, and is delighted to discuss doing custom work. Jill-Ann works out of a studio in her home, where she resides with her husband Teddy of 14 years and her pussycat Myron. You can reach her by going to www.CherofskyArt.com
