Gillian was born in London and studied at Camberwell, Bristol and Cardiff. Living in Cornwall since 1999, she is also a curator and member of Newlyn Society of Artists. With the rural Cornish landscape as a starting point, Gillian's work combines abstract mark making with figuration to explore moments of transition and metamorphosis. Through paintings, drawings and prints she explores the physical and metaphysical qualities of landscape and the shifting cycles of time, history and memories of place. Her work has been published in 'Revolver Art Cornwall' and 'Catching the Wave - Contemporary Art in Cornwall' by Tom Cross.
