Jillian Whelan

I grew up in an artistic community in Saint Petersburg, Florida. At an early age, you could find me spending time in the downtown art lofts where I studied under several local artists before attending Deerfield Academy in Western Massachusetts for high school. Deerfield had an intensive studio art program that pushed my creative potential to the next level. I left with a college portfolio of work that is still relevant today. While I opted for Business vs Art school, I continued to further my education in fine arts throughout college taking various fine arts classes and returned to my artistic calling attending Parsons the New School in New York City. Upon graduating from Parsons, I dove into the exciting world of New York City interiors; initially specifying for an architectural hardware company, working on some of New York's most exciting large scale luxury residential projects. I later transitioned to the world of corporate interiors working as a designer for an international leading green textile manufacturer; my role was incredibly creative, playing with color theory on large floor plates.

Eventually, I had sharpened my teeth enough to go out on my own. In the process of renovating and designing, I returned to painting. My first body of work, I rendered a small audience and was able to sell one of my first pieces, which then led to a commission, and later to an exhibition. I experienced a year of organic growth in my creative process and formed a detailed book of business before introducing Coloringwheelz as a full-time art and design studio.

My work ranges from bold statements to soft scenes of floating colorful orbs, both conduits exploring the relation of the part to the whole. I explore everything from metaphysical constructions to current pop culture through the expression and use of line, shape, and color; individual drops of paint coming together and creating a unified tactile landscape. I like to draw attention to one's place in the greater neural connectivity of the world and the nature of constructed reality around us. Fine art isn't always about looking, it is rather a hands-on experience where self-agency and raising one's vibration are my main focus.
