About Jill Targer

I started painting at the age of three, prompting my parents to enroll me in classes at the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Institute of Art. A native of Ohio, I gave up painting in high school to pursue a career in science, only to discover that my true calling was painting - much later in life.

My home and studio are located in a remote, scenic mountain region on the Central Coast of California, where vineyards flourish alongside farms growing all types of fruits and vegetables. The landscapes I see just driving to and from town, 18 miles away, are my frequent inspirations. As a business, I once led tours of local wineries and did a stint in wine marketing. My abiding love and fascination with wine and the good life and people who are associated with wines continues to be displayed in my artwork. Other topics I enjoy are taken from my life experiences; such as roller coasters, big trucks, flowers, pet, home items and the ocean. I now teach silk painting at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California.

I don't expect to change the world through my passion, but I hope to improve it one smile at a time. I'm grateful for the gift of art, and delighted that so many people tell me that just being near my paintings makes them happy.
