Jill McGannon


Jill Schultz McGannon completed her BFA and MFA in Drawing and Painting from the University of Georgia in 1988, and has worked as an artist since then. Her work can be seen in galleries including Mason Fine Art in Atlanta, Georgia (formerly Mason Murer) and Addington Gallery in Chicago, Illinois.She paints realistic landscape, figure and still life paintings in oils, preferring to work from life whenever possible. Her favorite destinations for plein air landscape painting include Italy, the Georgia and South Carolina coast, and the mountains of Georgia and North Carolina.The plein air paintings are often turned into larger paintings in the studio. In 2015 she has had work juried into shows of the Women Painters of the Southeast, Southern Appalachian Artist Guild, American Women Artists, and Oil Painters of America’s Eastern Regional Exhibition in Indianapolis, IN. For me, landscape painting is a search for the phenomenally beautiful. I try to find a view with a little bit of magic and then magnify it.jillmcgannon.com
