Although now living in Aberdeenshire, Jill was born and raised in Bradford - the heart of the wool industry - and studied graphics at the Bradford College of Art.
She now runs a sculpture business with her husband, producing sculpted 3D signs for clients all over Britain.
"I have always been interested in art, but became interested in wool quite by accident after breeding a small flock of rare breed sheep on our croft. I guess I would now call myself a wool artist - it's so absorbing and once I start one of my creations I just can't stop!"
What is your craft? Wool artist.
What is your favourite fibre? I have to say wool - it's so forgiving.
What is your favourite breed of sheep? Well my sheep are Hebridean and Shetland and I love them both. The colours of the Hebridean are fantastic ranging from jet black through to shades of chocolate and chestnut, and the sun-bleached tips of blonde. The Shetland's wool is so fine - almost like silk. Beautiful!
What do you like most about WOW? Lots of great products, and useful/interesting facts and people.
