I created this painting by layering dyed rice paper and transparent inks over canvas. It is inspired by a Minnesota lake.My intent was to capture shimmering light and intense variations of blues and purples. This painting is coated with art resin to enhance the hues and give it a glass effect.

Getting to Know Jill

J. Concetta received her MA in Design from the University of Minnesota where she studied color theory under great artists. One professor, Marian-Ortolf Bagley, often said that a painting must work in all directions to be truly unified. So J. would test works by hanging them upside down, and in each direction. J. sold some paintings in Minneapolis after graduation, but went on to manage the ink and paint department of an animation studio. The intense hues of the inking technique, along with Paul Klee’s use of transparent color, strongly influence her current body of work.
