Jillaine Jurchuk was born and raised in rural ON. (Canada). After graduating from interior design in 1999, she moved to Calgary AB. where she currently lives and works as a full time artist.
Being in the interior design field for over 16 years, it wasnít until late 2011 that she emerged herself into the art scene as an artist and has already created a unique style and name for herself. The beauty in the artistís pieces explores the world of photography and painting. Each piece is started from an original photograph that has captured the pure moment of Mother Natureís spontaneity which is then combined with multiple painting techniques and photographic layers to enhance the wide ranges of depths, tones, and textures found within each piece. Once completed, the piece is then printed onto an aluminum custom fabricated box and finished with a high gloss automotive clear coat. The combination of nature and technology provides the artist with an open palette and endless possibilities of making each piece unique from the other.
Jillaine is also a huge supporter of making a positive impact in the world. Not only does she donate pieces and/or her time to various organizations and committees, she also takes a percentage from pieces sold and donates to the charity/fundraiser that touches her heart for that year.
Currently her work graces the walls of many private and corporate collections throughout Canada, US and Europe.
It is my belief that beauty, along with the gift of giving is an authentic human want for a happy and healthy life. With that intent in mind, I passionately bring forth pieces that further challenge the opening of our eyes to the limitless possibilities that surround us each and every day while leaving a legacy.
The Plaza Galleries in the Whistler Resort is pleased and proud to represent the fine art of Jillaine Jurchuk
