Jill Green is a designer and printmaker based in London. Originally from Yorkshire, she studied Graphic design at Glasgow School of Art and moved to London to work as a graphic designer. A short course in screen printing reignited an enthusiasm for hands on drawing, designing and making and she set up her studio on Brick Lane on 2004 where she combined printing commissions with her own work including prints, stationery, leather work and textiles, which she sold at art fairs, and markets including Sunday Up-market and Greenwich market.
Jill's range of products has expanded and developed to reflect her interest in drawing, colour and craftsmanship. Screen printing still forms the basis of all her work. She creates hand cut paper stencils and uses bold naturalistic colours, which range from flat and graphic to carefully blended. She prints on paper, canvas, natural fabrics, leather and suede. Texture and finish are all important. Her leather work is hand printed and painted in the studio.
Drawing and photography form the starting point for Jill's work. She collects vintage animal, bird and object anthologies and uses these as inspiration for subject and colour. Similarly, contemporary and antique objects, fabrics and pottery are also an inspiration.
