“The most rewarding aspect of my work is the customers’ positive reaction to it. So much so, that in addition to purchasing one or more pieces, some customers tell me that they were inspired to take in that stray or abandoned dog or cat that they found.”
Ms. Flinn’s award winning art has received much critical acclaim. Jill believes that by bringing joy to her viewers, her art serves as an inspiration to share that joy with others, whether of the same species or not.
