Jill Lear is a painter whose trees in the landscape are a means of transcribing not only the experience of being in, and thinking about, Nature, but also the way in which we process the world around us. Jill’s large-scale works on paper have been exhibited in San Francisco, New York, Seattle, Austin and Sun Valley. Her work has been acquired by the permanent collections at Wright State University Art Museum in Dayton, OH, as well as the Philip Isles Collection, New York. Jill Lear trained formally at the New York Studio School and holds degrees from Southern Methodist University and The Chambre Syndicale of Haute Couture in Paris.
Lear currently resides in Ketchum, Idaho.
