Jill McVarish grew up Northern California and began painting seriously at the age of four. At 15 she dropped out of high school to dedicate more time to her work. She received a BFA in 1994 from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her style blends her acknowledgement of contemporary and more absurdist art with a reverence for traditional painting and visual composition.
