Jill Ankrom was born and raised in a small Ohio town where she still resides. She lives in the country with her husband in an old farmhouse, which she enjoys fixing up and decorating.
Jill has always loved art from an early age and can still remember the thrill of getting a new box of crayons that all had points! Her style is primarily a rustic, contemporary country look. When her children were small she began participating in craft shows. Later on in 1998 she started her own business, Stray Cat Art, designing a line of painting patterns and books for decorative painters. Stray Cat Art was named for her cats that share her home and surround her when she paints. Currently her household has six cats!
Jill has collected quotes for years and would like to share this one: "Happy are the painters for they shall not be lonely. Light and colors, peace and hope, will keep them company to the end of the day." - Winston Churchill
