After earning a degree in government and international relations, Jill started working in a local craft shop to earn a little income while figuring out her career. In that job, she learned how to make stained glass so that she could teach it to customers and be better informed to sell the merchandise.
After she and her husband, Marty, got married, they moved every 6 months or so for his job. She continued making stained glass gifts all the while. Eventually she created a collection of stained glass boxes and picture frames and sold them to East Coast gift shops. She also makes desk accessories and Judaica items.
In addition to being a stained glass artist, Jill is a skilled knitter, felter, spinner and weaver. Many of her stained glass pieces feature knitting and crocheting themes, such as knitting needle vases and needle holders with a ball of yarn motif.
