A pastel painting, “Big Rock 6,” by Jill Wagner (BFA 1978) is featured on the cover of the November issue of Plein Air magazine. Jill’s oil, watercolor and pastel paintings reflect her lifelong fascination with the interaction of light, shadow, color and form. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and is included in various corporate and private collections.
After graduating from Stamps with a BFA in 1978, she became the owner and creative director of an advertising and graphic design firm in Ann Arbor. She then went on to become a full-time professional artist. She often shares new paintings and art experiences on her blog, as well as demonstrations of works-in-process — visit the blog for more information.
