Jillelaine Condon is a self-taught, lifelong artist. She found inspiration in children’s books from an early age; illustrators such as Maurice Sendek and Mary Blair. Jill also drew a large amount of her inspiration from the stunning night skies and natural landscapes of her birthplace in northern Maine.
Utilizing many mediums, including water colors and illustration markers, Jill places her art onto water color paper and locally reclaimed woods. She spends hours focused on one small spot at a time to create a masterpiece of color.
Jill currently lives in southern Maine with an amazing daughter, wonderful husband, and their loving pack of dogs. She is a true work-from-home mom.
