Jill Thirza Cooper - Artist

Today, I'm highlighting some of my daughter's paintings. Jill Thirza Cooper lives in Chicago, IL with her family. She has a framing shop and art gallery called Forte Framing and Gallery. Jill is a design professional with an undergraduate degree in computer science and environmental design and a graduate degree in Architecture.

She has painted the Chicago skyline in various sizes and different times of the day and night. This past week, she posted the one below, on Facebook, and it sold. This one has a very colourful sky - a happy piece!

The swimming woman is my favorite. I saw it when I was in Chicago in April.

Most recent and just sold as well as a print of it.








'Sunburst! More sky highlights to happen and then boat tweaks and then a pass or two at the water shading.'
