Jill Allanson - the person behind the artist
Jill and Evan Allanson established and own Lyndoch Lavender Farm and Cafe. Since their son, Mathew began managing the farm Jill has been able to spend more time on one of her other passions, painting.
"Over 25 years ago, because of other pursuits (mainly setting up a lavender farm and playing bridge), I gave up oil and watercolour painting. Then, in August 2019, I once again picked up my brushes and plunged into acrylics. I quickly realised I needed to push myself and expand my repertoire if I was to keep up with the ideas flooding my head. Still experimenting, I am in a hurry, I want to try everything, doing florals, loving landscapes, and thoroughly enjoying abstraction - depicting the feeling, not just the reality".
Jill exhibits at 'Top of the Torrens' in Birdwood, South Australia, had an exhibition in March 2021, at 'Linhay Gallery' Auburn, South Australia at Lambert Wines December 2021, Thorn-Clark Wines for SALA in August 2022 and is currently 'captured't Top of the Torrens Gallery, Birdwood.
