After almost three decades in France then Cornwall, Jilly was drawn to return home to Scotland. She chose the East Neuk of Fife, a creative coastal community with picturesque working harbours on the Firth of Forth, Scotland. Here, feeling instantly very at home, Jilly has fulfilled a life long dream of living and working a stone’s throw from the sea. Being by the shore links all of the artist’s previous homes, each with a south coast, glittering in the sun. Perhaps this new daily proximity to the water and a sense of home has already begun to influence her recent work.
