Year One is a collection of mixed-media pieces that utilize acrylic, watercolor, maps and embroidery thread in their creation. These pieces carry distinct, feminine material references, while dealing with the human experiences of chance, intuition, balance and control. This collection of abstract pieces evokes nuanced responses that are clear, emotional and reflective. 

After teaching elementary school for more than a decade, Jill Samuels committed herself to developing an established studio practice.

Jill currently works in her studio, in the historic South Main Arts District in Memphis, and has shown work locally at the Levy Gallery and Art Village Gallery.
