Collection: Jill Tisbury

I’m a self-taught artist and have used most mediums.

That said, my favourite medium is pastel pencils on velour paper.  I just think it works so well for animal portraits.  You can get so many layers on velour and it all adds to the depth of the painting.

I particularly like the challenge of rendering the fur for animal portraits.  I like the portraits to look as though you could feel the fur.

I paint all sorts of animals, but my favourite subject, you’ve probably guessed is cats, domestic or wild.
