"Its good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters in the end."      -Unknown
   
Jilli's journey has been an adventure to say the least...She was born in Manhattan in 1951 and raised in Valley Stream, Long Island, New York.  She has been a resident of Coral Springs, Florida for over 25 years.  Jilli's a self-taught artist, mother of 3 children and was a student of Kenpo Karate for over nine years where she learned she COULD accomplish the impossible!  After a 2-year break, Jilli followed her heart back to her old dojo to study kick-boxing... still learning there is no such thing as "CAN'T"...  Jilli  substituted martial arts for ballroom dancing, as a student and teacher to high school students...  Jilli's immersed  herself in many aspects of art, from poetry writing, to fabric design and construction, paintings on stone and fabric, to watercolor, oil  and acrylics.  She seems to get lost in all forms of art, eager to learn as much as she can, never settling down to any one...always trying, whatever she can, to get her hands dirty!  Her passion is in portraits.  Jilli painted her first portrait (Albert Einstein) in 1994, and one year later, with over 30 portraits, held  a one woman show entitled "Faces From Around The World".  Soon after, she produced 8 lithographs currently sold in stores and catalogues nationwide.  By June 2001, Jilli's creations expanded to the sale of hotplates, greeting cards, coasters, mugs, mouse pads, murals and more.  And so, the corporation, "just another jilli" was was born.  During an interesting leg of this journey, a book of poetry came forth from a place in her heart that she had no idea existed.  Jilli learned quite a lot about love and pain, and decided to share these emotions with the dream of publishing this book.  She'd always thought she'd devote serious time to sculpture when her children left the nest, but recently unearthed ancient clay that had been collecting dust in the garage, and in one weekend, created 18 mini-sculptures, several she's included in the illustrations of this book.  Her love of clay grew to designing jewelry, which has been her focus (and joy) for the past several years...  When asked what she wants to be when she grows up, Jilli replied:" I STILL haven't decided what I want to be when i grow up...I'm just enjoying this wonderful journey...path by path..."
