Jillian Dyson grew up on a coastal farm in New Zealandís beautiful Bay of Islands. An avid horse rider she spent much of her time riding on magnificent shorelines where she developed a life long passion for the sea and sky. It was this, she believes, that planted the seeds for her desire to become a fine artist.

With this in mind, at the age of twenty she set off to study art in the great European museums. Florence became her home away from home. She sketched the character of the people on the streets and painted endless landscapes. With her passion, commitment, and talent, she was able to sell her work to survive. It wasnít long before a series of galleries picked up her work, including Liberty of London. It was a remarkable beginning for her lifelong journey as a painter.

Five years later, Jillian left Europe to settle in Sydney, Australia, where she became sought after as a portrait painter. She received commissions to paint Sir Peter Ables of TNT Transport and Ansett Airlines, as well as yachtsman Alan Bond of Americaís Cup fame and other notables.

In 1996, her work caught the eye of New York dealer in London. She became the resident artist at the Antipodes Gallery in Katonah, New York. In 2014, Jillian was personally invited to have a One-Woman Exhibition by the owners of the new World Travel Center, Tower Four. While her two children grew up, she shipped paintings from Sydney and traveled to New York frequently for exhibitions. Her Impressionist-style works reminiscent of Turner and Monet were extremely well received.

When her children flew the nest, Jillianís love of New York inspired her to settle here. Now she resides in a cottage by the water in Greenwich, Connecticut and divides her time between New York, Sydney, and Europe. Her work is described as timeless, her masterful European styled works reside in corporate and private collections worldwide.
