In 2010 and 2011 Jill began “The Boob Project.” She teamed up with one of the largest Breast Cancer Resource foundations in the New England area to work on a 24 piece project called “Beauty and Symbolism Found in the Scars” The exhibits focus on the various degrees of breast surgeries and the choices of each portraits subject. With personalized themes that range from the ocean to animal patterns to angel wings, commemorating the female body through impression is a moving experience for those who were involved.
She also teamed up with the foundation again in 2013 to work on a Rhode Island community art installation called “The Starfish Project”. Jill’s sought after “Regeneration Series” or “Sculpture on Canvas Series” started in 2010. “The art represents strength, endurance, and perseverance through our personal regeneration in life.” She is currently working on a series of children’s book illustrations and is creating other fine art pieces.
