Jilly Frances

Jilly Frances lives in Toronto. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and a post graduate diploma in Art Therapy, she has worked as an artist for Anthropologie, an art therapist for children, a set and installation designer for films and brands, and often finds that no matter what she’s making, she works best on the floor.

"Like you, I am many pieces; stillness and motion, introspection and curiosity, in the clouds and on the ground. I find myself ever exploring my relationship to the transience of light and time. Catching skies, temporal shadows, and the turning of the sun, I continue to take notes in this way, imbuing ephemera with a sense of permanence. By creating capsules of moments that change or disappear even while we witness them, the work does its best to capture energy that is both present and fleeting."
