Jill Daniels (b. Fairbanks, Alaska)
About her work The Domestic Collection:The Object As An Utopian Proposal - "I speak through solitary pieces of furniture to communicate ideas about my past life and future aspirations. My acrylic paintings of chairs, ottomans, beds and lounging sofas hint At the kind of symbolism found in a world where the unexplained is governed by supernatural rules."
Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Jill has been drawing and painting from an early age. Along with exhibiting and selling paintings to collectors in Asia, Australia, Europe and throughout the United States, Daniels’ talent as a painter has also translated into a highly successful career in illustration with entertainment companies.
