Born in Bowling Green, Ohio Jill Sarver Rossi received her M.F.A. in Painting from Western Connecticut State University, M.A. in Painting and Drawing from Eastern Illinois University, and B.F.A in Painting and B.A. in Spanish from Miami University (Ohio).
Jill's work investigates feminine presence, derived from memory and observation of ancient Egyptian and Roman figures and artifacts. She uses shifts in tonality and light to explore the duality between solidity and air, linking present and past. Her recent series, "Anonymous," has been shown in Connecticut and New York City, and is in private collections throughout the U.S.
Along with her studio practice, Jill is Deputy Director with Rome Art Program, a New York-based educational non-profit. She is also Senior Curator with Cynthia Byrnes Contemporary Art, Westport, CT,
Jill has juried and curated independent exhibitions and taught art education throughout the Midwest and New York metro area. She continues her studio practice at The Knowlton, Bridgeport, CT.
