I am Jill Miller, an artist living in Urbana, Illinois. Since 1992, I’ve been exhibiting my batiks at art shows and festivals. I work primarily on clothing, but also make pillows, velvet scarves, handbags and lampshades.
I learned how to batik in an art class at the University of Illinois in 1989 and was immediately addicted. Batik is a sloppy, waxy mess and it’s always a pleasant surprise to see the bright, colorful designs that were hiding under layers of wax. I love playing with color combinations, coming up with silly new designs, and just having fun with it all.
