"As a seasoned Creative Director who’s worked side-by-side with some of today’s top artists and designers, having the opportunity to experience the fine art created by Jillian Suzanne has been an ultimate delight. From a commercial perspective, Jillian Suzanne’s character pieces are agency quality. From a fine-art perspective her paintings tap gracefully into the ethereal. From a Creative Director’s perspective, Suzanne’s work is committed and alive. Personally, I am in anticipation as I imagine the countless possibilities found deep within Jillian Suzanne’s next piece."
Jillian's art classes got our 7-yr through COVID shutdown! Jillian was a welcome and friendly face each week for our daughter as she got sole attention and instruction on her favorite subject! She's decided she wants to be an art teacher when she grows up. :) Jillian was adept at handling the volatile emotions that arose during our isolation and for shifting gears to what would keep our daughter engaged and loving art.
Jillian is a great teacher! My son was very nervous before his first zoom lesson with Jillian. At the end of his lesson, he was beaming with pride. Jillian has a great way of interacting with him and teaching him new techniques. Importantly, she lets him decide what he'd like to work on and supports his decision making. It's empowering for him. He is excited to attend his lessons with Jillian and is eager to learn more with her, which makes me very happy!
Jillian is awesome. My daughter has been learning from Jillian for sometime, she is one of the best teacher my daughter had been with. She not just helped her with her art skills but also helped her be more confident. I really like the way how friendly she is with the kids, always kind and polite to them and sooo much fun too. Recently my daughter started taking one to one online zoom classes and she has been loving it, also with all the individual attention I see a great improvement in her art skills. Jillian's teaching skills are amazing, my daughter who is just 7 years old started drawing human faces. I am so glad my daughter got to learn from such a knowledgeable teacher like her.
"It is my pleasure to take the opportunity to write in support of Jillian Suzanne’s artwork. The first time I was referred to Jillian’s work, I was immediately struck by her diversity in subject, medium and especially by her unique style. She displays an extraordinary sense of humor, color and composition that sets her apart from many artists on my roster and makes it very appealing to a larger group of audience. I have shown her in many gallery shows, art events and installations. Her work always creates a tremendous response from viewers and collectors. I am impressed by Jillian’s focus and dedication and hard work creating one large body of work after another."

Over the years we have exhibited her work in our gallery as well as on the online auctions formerly available on Sothebys.com. Jillian Suzanne is a very talented artist and her work always has a uniquely appealing element that never ceases to attract new customers. Jillian.Suzanne also has a great personality, making her a pleasure to work with."
"Jillian Suzanne creates an engaging mix of acrylics, textures and when we are lucky, words. Her pieces catch you by chance, then draw you into a world of presence and thought. Whether in a gallery or on display in her studio, her work combines thought with accessibility – a rare combination. I’m looking forward to seeing what her imagination will bring to us next."
"As an image maker, Jillian Suzanne never ceases to amaze me. Just when you think she can't take things higher, she does. Her quality and consistency are what separate her from her peers. Rock solid every time. She is artistically a presence to be reckoned with. She maintains a standard and professionalism in everything she does."
"I have had the pleasure of attending several of her Wine & Paint classes. It is very relaxed and Jillian Suzanne is GREAT with beginners, like myself. She accepts feedback and adjusts her classes so that consistent regular patrons such as myself will enjoy the material. Fun event, day or night, and I always have a great time with great friends.
