Jill Wyatt Marshall
Watercolor is Jill Wyatt Marshall's favorite medium and her passion for accuracy and detail is accomplished by using a tight, realistic style. Jill has the ability to make the personalities of her models come alive in her paintings…with a slight tilt of the head…an adoring look…a swinging ponytail. She personally photographs her subjects; therefore her home and studio are filled with hug-worn teddy bears, rusty minner buckets, vintage clothes, hats, quilts and other treasures.
Jill began painting in 1995, but has always had an artistic spirit and a unique flair. Throughout her life, she has written poetry and music, played a number of musical instruments, sung in many different settings, has been Master of Ceremonies and speaker for numerous civic events and public organizations, and has owned and operated two gift stores and two art galleries. One of Jill’s paintings, “THE MULLIGAN”, was selected by PGA Tour player, Ryan Palmer, as the official logo for the Ryan Palmer Foundation. Jill was also commissioned to create a mirror-mosaic, life-size Quarter-horse mare and colt, now displayed at the Women’s Healthcare Associates building in Amarillo. She currently owns “IMA FUSSBUDGET” (an antique/gift/decorating business), and also co-owns “TWO’S COMPANY”, an estate liquidation service, with her dear friend, Debora Webb.
Jill comes from an incredibly artistic background. Her father, Kenneth Wyatt, is an internationally-known artist, her mother, Veda, is a sculptor and jewelry designer, and her brother, Mark, creates all of the Wyatt Galleries' original framing designs and also manages the Galleries' framing department.
Jill lives in Tulia, TX with her husband, Matthew, who manages the Wyatt Galleries' foundry, Y-8 Bronze, as well as the Wyatt Galleries' web site and IT operations. Matthew and Jill have one son, Jakob, who also works in all aspects of the business, and is now a third generation Wyatt artist working in oil on canvas.
When Jill was a small child, the Wyatt family began visiting Taos and Santa Fe, N.M., where they frequented galleries, museums, and Indian markets. (A continued family tradition). Motivated by her lifelong adoration and respect for the Native American culture and its history, Jill captures the quiet, noble beauty of its people with paint and brush.
Jill's love for animals is a constant inspiration, and she excels at capturing the faithful bond between pets and their humans. Delightful glimpses of unconditional love, playful puppy hood, or old and faithful friends are among Wyatt's best works.
"I love to paint children…just being children." The challenge of portraying a child totally consumed with being 4 years old is a difficult, yet exciting one, according to Jill. Her paintings of sugar an' spice an' everything nice or those of snails, whales, an' puppy dog tails are brimming with wit, imagination and charm.
Jill currently accepts commission art work inquiries, public speaking inquiries and estate liquidation sale inquiries. Please contact Kenneth Wyatt Galleries for further information.
