A BFA Graduate from the University of Western Ontario, contemporary artist Jill Price spent the majority of her childhood in Pickering, Ontario, where her family lived on the edge of suburban development. This along with a farming background and her parent’s passion for camping, hiking and skiing, generated a true respect and connection with the land that still informs Price's work today. After studying with some of London's greatest creative minds at Western; Duncan De Kergommeaux, Sheila Butler, Wyn Geleynse, Colette Urban, Kim Moodie, Helmut Becker, and curator Barbara Fischer, Price remained in London and became an active member of its vibrant artistic community as an artist, arts writer (Scene Magazine), and arts administrator (Forest City Gallery, London Arts Council, Axis Studios). Upon meeting her mother's birth mother; a painter residing near Syracuse, New York, Price relinquished her arts administrative roles in 2002 to become more focused on her practice. This began her journey in paint, collage and the incorporation of textiles. Price's work exists in private and corporate collections throughout the world, and most recently Jill was selected to represent Canada at the World Art Games Conference in Turkey during the fall of 2012.
