left Scotland many years ago, but her love for the mountains, lochs and
shorelines still lie deep in her heart and now dominate her work.
Her intuitive style and approach involves spending many hours walking
on beaches, scrambling over rocks or just simply sitting and absorbing
the magical landscape of the west coast of Scotland. Jill
born and educated in Scotland and relocated to Germany in
2000. She now lives and works near Düsseldorf, but returns to the
west coast every year seeking more inspiration
for future artwork.
and camera always on hand, Jill tries to capture the moods and fleeting
weather changes which bring such depth of colour and
mystique to this exceptional and exhilarating part of Scotland.
Using acrylic on watercolour paper and a palette knife technique called
Sgraffito meaning, "to scratch through", she succeeds in bringing both
very fine detail and a dynamic fluidity to her work thus creating a
visually rewarding experience for the viewer.
McIntosh exhibits her work as a member of the
Artwork Kreativ Group at their October 2011 art exhibition and November
2012 Burg Brüggen exhibition.

Wales drehte sie im Jahr 2000 schließlich der Insel den
