Enriching the Arts

Featured Artist: Jillaine Jurchuk, ASA


Biography

Jillaine Jurchuk, ASA, was born and raised in rural ON. (Canada). After graduating from interior design in 1999, she moved to Calgary AB. where she currently lives and works as a full time artist.

Being in the interior design field for over 16 years, it wasn’t until late 2011 that she emerged herself into the art scene as an artist and has already created a unique style and name for herself. The beauty in the artist’s pieces explores the world of photography and painting. Each piece is started from an original photograph, that has captured the pure moment of Mother Nature’s spontaneity, which is then combined with multiple painting techniques and photographic layers to enhance the wide ranges of depths, tones, and textures. The combination of nature and technology provides the artist with an open palette and endless possibilities of making each piece unique from the other.

Jillaine is also a huge supporter of making a positive impact in the world. Not only does she donate pieces and/or her time to various organizations and committees, she also takes a percentage from pieces sold and donates to the charity/fundraiser that touches her heart for that year.

Currently her work graces the walls of many private and corporate collections throughout Canada, US and Europe.

ASA Q & A

ASA: Can you tell us about your influences?
Jillaine: Mother Nature and her every changing beauty is my major influence. I am also inspired by Edward Burtynsky and his large scaled photographs of industrial landscapes and Ricardo Mazal who merges digital technology with his painting skills.

ASA: Which body of work would you consider your most successful to date?
All my bodies of work I consider to be my most successful to date as each piece is a journey that has gotten me to where I am today. With the completion of each series created, I’ve learnt new ideas and ways to push my work even further and I love nothing more then hearing my clients ask “how did you do this” and/or “how did you ever come up with this idea”? My goal is to be able to see my own personal growth within each piece.
