A collaborative project between sketch artist Jill Deering and printmaker Gillian Henderson.
Jill Deering is a sketch artist and musician based in Dublin. Jill has been touring as part of James Vincent McMorrows band for the past 6 years while also establishing herself as a very talented illustrator and sketch artist.
Jills ability to create likenesses of the subjects she sketches using tools such as pencil can be seen at the first glance when viewing any of her work.
Gillian Henderson is a print maker and picture framer. At present Gillian works in Hang Tough Framing in Dublin, the framing choice for contemporary art and prints.
Gillian has been screen printing since 2012, her work is designed and hand printed, in-house, at her Dublin-based studio.
How Jill & Gill started
Jills solo art show last October 2015 gave Jill and Gillian an excuse to work together for the first time.
Since then this collaboration has slowly developed into Jill & Gill, a small Dublin based sketch, and screen printing partnership.
Not only do the girls work exceptially well together and share the same name but they share the same Birthday and love for stripes.
With the business only 2 months old the girls already have prints avalible to buy and are launching an online shop to take things further a field with new print reasleses already planed for June and July.
