Jill Henderson Pasanen Bio

Jill Henderson Pasanen came to the USA from the UK in 1992 after a long career in the world of dance as a dance educator and choreographer. Starting watercolor classes, she fell in love with visual art and moved on to her current passion - mixed media collage – which she has now been creating for 20 years producing prizewinning collages and exhibiting in many local and regional galleries. Taking classes at the Farmington Valley Arts Center (FVAC) and West Hartford Art League and from many independent artists, she became a teacher herself, teaching mixed media collage at FVAC and West Hartford Art League. The connections between dance and visual art have been a constant source of inspiration.

“To discover something that gives you intense pleasure in the second half of your life is truly a gift. To play with layers of color and texture on bright white paper is to re-experience childhood — an experience of pure play.”
