HODGSON, Gillian [Jill] R

1961 - ?

Jill Hodgson

Born in Ipswich in 1961, daughter of John E. Hodgson and his wife Jean V. née Farrow, who married at Ipswich in 1956. Studied at Ipswich School of Art & Design in 1980’s, graduating in interior design in 1984, thereafter Jill embarked into the commercial world of architecture and interior design. After a time in Australia 1999-2000, being inspired by the native plants, her talents as a designer diversified to that as an artist, successfully exhibiting in various shows and galleries in Melbourne. Returning to England she settled back into interior design, but discovered a new medium to excite her as an artist in the contemporary use of plaster, similar to pargetting of old, creating a highly textured finish, exploring all types of subject matter from landscapes, figurative to abstract. From 2003 Jill has successfully exhibited her work in various shows and galleries in Suffolk and Essex, including the Ipswich Art Society when she exhibited from Vernon House, Main Road, Chelmondiston, Suffolk a plaster & paint 'The River Wide' and was selected to exhibit a piece in the ‘Discerning Eye Exhibition’ in the Mall Galleries London 2008. Her work is to be found in the Buckenham Galleries, Southwold.
