Profile


Jill Nonnemacher, a native of New Jersey, is a contemporary artist who now calls Texas home.  Always an artist, Jill was also interested in the human mind, how it functions and the effects the subconscious has on ones creativity. 


Jill started her early professional career as a textile designer and also had a  private psychotherapy practice. Jill was also a fine artist who painted and sculpted the figure. Although Jill always created art throughout the years she did not exhibit her body of work until the past 10 years.


Jill has found that working with clay is a natural fit for her creative expression. She favors working in a figurative, expressionist style and is entirely immersed in sculpting, using clay and plaster as her medium.  She is creating emotionally compelling work that comes from the depth of her being.  Her creations depict spirit, energy, passion and the visual flexibility of depth.  Her process of artistic expression is one that evolves intuitively, as the dance between forms, texture and material interact through continuous action.  Reflecting on her past and armed with her understanding of the effects the psyche has on her own life and creations, she continues her own self-analysis which provides fuel for her continuous prolific creations.


Jill’s art can be seen in various public, corporate and private collections around the country. Her paintings have been published in fine art books including, ‘Art Buzz’ and ‘Addiction and Art’ and has been featured on magazine covers both nationally and internationally. Her painting, “Best Friends”, was chosen for the Vagina Monologues theatre production Playbill in Fort Worth, TX.  Jill’s art has been cited in Professional Artist Magazine and her painting “Empowered” was cited in Hopkins Medical Journal.


Jill’s sculptures have been included in many gallery exhibitions around the country. Recently, her sculpture installation, Life Force was included in the Tyler Museum of Art “Art of Peace” exhibition.


Jill is represented by the Haley-Henman Gallery in Dallas, TX


Jill’s Art is a reflection and celebration of life, capturing the essence and spirit of the soul.
