Jill McVarish paints extremely realistic scenes that could never actually happen, in a style inspired by the old Masters. Trained as a traditional artist, she spent more than a decade as a commercial painter but these days, creates her own work, inspired by an extensive collection of images, and ideas that she gets as she walks around Astoria with her dog, Chauncy.
