An IAMD MFA Graduate from OCAD University, Jill Price received a national SSHRC research grant for her investigations of land as archive. Looking at the intersection of drawing and sculpture, Price completed her undergraduate work at the University of Western Ontario under the tutelage of some of London's greatest creative minds such as Duncan De Kergommeaux, Sheila Butler, Wyn Geleynse, Colette Urban, Kim Moodie, Helmut Becker, and curator Barbara Fischer. Now living and working in Barrie, Ontario, Price spent the majority of her childhood in Pickering, Ontario, where her family lived on the edge of suburban development. This along with a farming background and her parent’s passion for camping, hiking and skiing generated a true respect and connection with the land that still informs the artist's work today. At times narrative and other times abstract, Price works across different media in both an indexical and expressive way to map her surroundings, their materiality and the constant state of change in which we attempt to coexist.
Price currently works as the Curator at Quest Art in the Midland Cultural Centre and teaches part-time at Georgian College and OCAD University.
