Jill DeCotiis

new york NY USA
I am a trained classical pianist and started experimenting with drawing in 2011. I began drawing during a time when I was not performing as regularly and I found great satisfaction in having a new creative outlet. I have over 200 drawings which I think of as abstract improvisations since I never really know or plan what I am going to draw beforehand. There is often a nature influence in my work and although I have been told that they look like paintings, they are done with colored felt pens. One of these drawings was in an exhibit at the A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn last summer and it was sold. I recently sold two more drawings this year and often make cards out of the drawings for special occasions. I have no formal training in drawing but did study art history for 2 years in college (Ancient & Medieval through Modern Art) and am in avid museum goer. I have recently begun painting with acrylics and working on a larger scale. *Note: These images were taken with an iPhone and it was difficult to avoid getting some background from the book that they are in on some of the drawings. Also, it was difficult to take photos that would not appear crooked. The originals are of good quality and can be framed to meet professional standards.
