“When I make a painting I am building a psychologically charged space. I usually start off with a few sketches that familiarize me with the problems I will encounter in the final work. My technique varies based on the content of my subject matter. Indirect methods appear and can be utilized at any time in the course of a paintings development. Look at the pentimento that we find in a Da Vinci, Titian, or Caravaggio painting. They repainted but still maintained the ultimate balance. Ultimately, I develop my own techniques to come up with a unique visual language and aesthetic.” --Telvin Wallace is a Senior in the NCCU Department of Art who creates portraits.

In 2014, Jillian published a book on her mentor and friend, Benjamin Forrest Williams, who was the first curator of the North Carolina Museum of Art from its inception in 1949 until 1979. Th e book, “Benjamin Forrest Williams, a biographical essay” is available on Amazon.
“I believe my paintings - through color, shape, and texture reflect the energy I put into my creative process. I’ve been inspired by the pure colors, distortions and boldness of the Fauves as well as the impulsive and gestural interpretations of the Abstract Expressionists. I want my work to look spontaneous, but organized - gestural, but not chaotic. I hope that someone viewing my work will resonate with a painting and take delight in the energy of my work. Making a connection with my work in that manner is a happy thought for me.” --Susan LaMantia
