Jill Sarver MFA '10
Jill Sarver of Woodville, Ohio has been fascinated by archeology, and brings that perspective to her work: “My paintings are intuitive responses to my research, observation, and perception of women of the ancient Egypto-Roman world. At a young age I brought these silent figures to life in my mind and translated the visions into drawings. As ancient peoples were buried and forgotten, my sketchbooks laid dormant for many years. It is my desire to resurrect these characters and to express the same love, nostalgia, and haunting that I feel, to my viewers.”
Jill received her MA in painting and drawing from Eastern Illinois University and her BFA in painting and a BA in Spanish from the Miami University of Ohio.
Jill is working as the Visual Arts Coordinator for the Westport Arts Center in Westport, CT
