Jill Thalman is a Toronto-based illustrator, designer, and creative individual who dabbles in various crafts. Her artistic process blends digital techniques with analog mediums such as watercolor, ink, pencil, crayon, and collage. Jill infuses her work with a touch of whimsy by drawing inspiration from symbols, mythologies, and patterns. Folk art, mid-century design, and iconography also significantly influence her artistic endeavors. Jill thrives on stepping outside her comfort zone, indulging in the thrill of creative problem-solving, and embracing projects with well-defined boundaries.
