The Artist Behind The Brush
Interior Designer, Artist, & Mommy
Jilian Cramb is an interior designer, mommy, and artist. Her artwork is inspired by the love between this mother and her son.
Jilian is a single mother of a happy, energetic 7 year-old boy, Asher.
Her degree is in Interior Design where she was formally trained in computer-aided design, but also hand-rendering and sketching techniques.
Mental illness and the negative stigma are real. Jilian suffers from anxiety and depression; mental illness can overwhelm at any given time. Many of Jilian's pieces were created during a manic, or depressed state. Aggressively, of despair, therapeutically, or elation. Pieces have been created during, or prompted by, her illness. An emotional escape and/or physical manifestation of what she felt is within each piece.
Realism is about the only thing you won't find in her body of work, as she says: 'Why paint things as they are, when, with a paint brush and canvas, anything, in any color is possible?' Jilian aims to create artwork that engages the eye, and utilizes colors and subjects that illicit emotion(s) from the viewer.
Jilian has had her work exhibited in her home town of Livonia, Michigan, 2016 & 2017. She has shown her work with RAW Artists & Conception Arts.
