Thanks for visiting Jill Butler Design!
Jill Butler Design is my small business specializing in hand screen printed homewares and accessories.
I have a studio at my home in Auckland, NZ where I like to design, paint, draw, print fabrics and make the products that I sell in my online store.
Here are some examples of my work, and my studio...
I am not a full time artist. I spend most days working as a gardener. But, when I can I love to spend time working on my latest projects in my studio.
Today, for instance, I was rained out from a gardening job, so have spent a delicious day listening to podcasts while hand painting some fabric and updating this blog.I just adore these unexpected bonus days in the studio!
I am a self taught artist, in that I never went to art school. However, I have been to many night classes and short courses over the years, delved into many inspirational books, worked alongside creative friends and lately of course have had access to the wonderful internet with all the amazing resources it brings.
But mostly it is has simply been time and practice that has been my teacher.
I hope you enjoy my blog.
