Artist/Author Jill Butler first moved to France as an overworked and exhausted New York career gal in search of a change of lifestyle and the experience of a different culture. Paris seemed the ultimate challenge. With a bit of school French she plunged in, made friends, and found her Paris. Ultimately, Butler spent fourteen years living and learning all things French while working as a designer and freelance illustrator and showing her fine art collages in Parisian and Normandy galleries.
Butler has authored and illustrated two books, Paintbrush in Paris and Rendez-vous with France. The latter is a point-and-pronounce guide to traveling, shopping, and eating in France -- the perfect accompaniment to Wandering Paris.
From her studio in the Connecticut River Valley, Butler designs French-inspired tabletop products. Her collection can be viewed at www.jillbutler.com. She also teaches art and art marketing while never letting her passort rest idle.
