I'm Jill, a seventeen year-old furniture refinisher and big dreamer from Alberta. I love Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, bright colors, cowboy boots and birdcages.
I found Annie Sloan Chalk Paint a little over a year ago and have been painting ever since. In that short time I apprenticed for my friend and role model who suddenly passed away on July 7th, 2012. Tara not only showed me how important it is to do something you love but also taught me how to be strong and to never give up on what you want to do or what you are meant to do. I think about her everyday and know that whenever I pick up my red handled paintbrush she's there telling me to check for drips.
Because of Tara I am open for business and plan on doing exactly what she taught me, doing what I love.
"Devote yourself to an idea. Go make it happen. Struggle on it. Overcome your fears. Smile. Don't you forget : this is your dream."
