She taught at the Anglo-American School of Moscow and is currently trying her hand at writing. She recently relocated back to the USA after more than twenty years overseas in Russian, Poland and China.

Jill is primarily a self-taught artist. She first started painting in 2001 with Russian impressionist Valery Gueraskevich.
