Jill Thomson

Jill Thomson's artwork evokes her personal history of a small town/prairie childhood, an urban Montreal young adulthood and a settled life as artist and mother of three in Edmonton. Her rich colourful palette and complex compositions celebrate a creative life in cities with generous front porches, cafes, bookstores, bicycle paths, gardens and ravines. She received her BFA from Concordia University in Montreal. She is represented by Gibson Fine Art in Calgary and AGA Art Rental and Sales in Edmonton. Thomson’s neighbourhood painting for Premier Rachel Notley depicts the Legislature from a Strathcona neighbourhood perspective, and hangs in the Premier’s Office in the Alberta Legislature. Nine of her paintings are featured in a permanent alleyway mural for the Alberta Ave Alley Project, as part of the revitalization of Alberta Avenue. She has work in Edmonton City Hall, The Alberta Foundation for the Arts and in international public and private collections.
