Artist Jill Morton breathes intense emotions into her paintings, she interprets her strokes both with intention and abandon to create glowing abstract pieces. "What comes out is very raw and honest—and is a response to the energy and beauty I feel when I am observing nature," says Jill. She took art classes and traveled in pursuit of it, eventually landing in an art school in New York. A lifelong journey with art has helped her master connecting to her creative pulse to become the abstract artist she is meant to be. Her work always maintains a vigorous and spirited quality, prevailing in her goal to evoke wonder in the viewer. She shares her charming 300 square feet studio with a collective of 36 artists and musicians in a refurbished corset factory in Bridgeport, CT.

About The Artist
I begin a painting by intuitively choosing a color palette and mixing. My energy builds through this process and I decide on a canvas size. I use quick body movements and marks to help set the compositional stage. My process is a combination of strong emotions and interpreting responses to the marks I have made in front of me with brushes, palette knives, crayons and other unconventional tools. This dialogue continues until I am satisfied the painting is working as a whole and I really love it. I am definitely influenced by abstract expressionist women artists.
