Gill is an awarded and published digital artist. She has won, it seems, nearly every level of award with her works. She has exhibited with the North Shore Salon of Photography and The Photographic Society of NZ and you may have seen some of her images published in Photo Art and NZ Camera.
Her work covers a lot of genre: portraits, landscapes, abstracts, and montage, often with spiritual feel about them. Her style is constantly changing and evolving depending on “my mood at the time and the subject matter”. She tells us her ideas spring from something seen, read, touched, or heard.
Even an aroma can be the start of an idea. Each image is then worked with layers of colours, textures and images either added or removed. When the right sense of peace is reached it is finished. But often the images are left with some mystery for the viewer to find their own meaningor story to explain – that is when they make it their own.
Gill runs a photographic and printing business in Greerton and dislikes macramé. She is an Associate of the Photographic Society of NZ
