Jill Perrott studied at Elam School of Fine Arts at Auckland University in the 1960’s, and in the 1990’s re-energized her artistic abilities at workshops at ‘Art Station’ (now Studio One) and Elam Summer Schools. It was in 1997 that Perrott exhibited for the first time at Titirangi’s Lopdell House Community Gallery and as a result is now a well-known New Zealand artist.
Perrott has won many awards over the past two decades and exhibits widely throughout New Zealand. She is represented in galleries in Havelock North, Nelson, Christchurch and Dunedin.
Perrott works from her studio in Auckland and has been represented by Parnell Gallery since 2001.
