During the Pandemic of 2020, Jilly was drawn to return home to Scotland, after almost three decades elsewhere. She chose the East Neuk of Fife, a creative coastal community, on the Firth of Forth, with its picturesque working harbours. 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 sea links all of the artist’s previous homes, but perhaps this new daily proximity to the water and a sense of home has already begun to influence her recent work.
