Jill Faulkner

  » Brushfx Studio

Jill Faulkner was working as a professional artist/designer in the creative industries since her teens. Her experience in graphic design and illustration spans over 30 years. Jill Faulkner - artist, lecturer & mentor = brushfx studio.

In 2003, a rainforest walk to Tamborine Mountain = proved to be a life-changing event — the very next day she relocated from Brisbane.

Ten years on she designed and project managed her Mountain home, art studio & gallery, ‘brushfx’ which is a colourfully creative and digital hive. Where she runs creative workshops for people of all ages and diversities. In our time of evolving technology, keeping abreast of the latest and greatest digital triumphs is time consuming and demanding.

To provide life balance,Jill returns to the traditional art medium of paint on canvas/skin, blending traditional artistry with her graphic design skills and using innovative ways of layering and blending colours to create magic. Jill loves mentoring up and coming young designers, passing her industry knowledge and work skills onto them. Teaching the graphic design diploma for TAFE Queensland is only one of Jill passions. Along with digital designing logos, branding and adverts for local businesses and artists, such as the Artisan Fayres branding and promotional material.

Jill’s recent paintings of fairies and a cute critters she calls Mimbies (miniature iridescent magical beings) have inspired her to write a storybook called A Place Beyond, a magical and heartfelt fable of a group of Mimbies, fairies and other mythical creatures living in a world beyond the blink of an eye and dusk (almost published).

Tmac acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands we operate on, the Wanggerriburras people and pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging.
