A Journey
Discoveries along the path less traveled

Works by Jill Huxtable

“My art is something that emerges from within me, an inner desire to create and express myself.”
Jill Huxtable grew up in Lawrence, KS and has been making art since early childhood. She took advantage of the excellent art department in the school system there, and has won many awards over the years. After putting her artwork on the back burner while raising her children and working as a hairstylist, she has picked her art back up full time upon retirement. Since that time, she has shown in numerous galleries and art shows around the Kansas City area. She takes advantage the many art classes available, and attends art workshops as her schedule permits.

“I paint what I lack the words to express.”
