  • Biography
    Hello, I'm Jill Griffin, an artist living and working in South Devon of England.

    I truly believe in my work: I am passionate about it and almost always totally in love with whatever I am working on and I think that's really important- it keeps things fresh and alive!

    I have been painting and drawing for as long as I have been able to make marks, working primarily in watercolour, which I adore. I love its unpredictable nature the translucent quality of this medium, and often use pen to capture the essence of a character.
     I have a dynamic and contemporary style not normally associated with watercolour and I am inspired by the natural world: from the changing seasons to curious farmyard faces.
    My paintings are collected worldwide and I am fortunate enough to exhibit my work here in Devon at several local galleries, and I coordinate a group of roving exhibiting artists- Devon Art Pop
    I also tutor students- sharing my love for watercolour, and that is actually the most rewarding part of my job.
    I am very happy to take commissions, please get in touch if you would like to discuss one.
    My mantra is 'share and enjoy'
