in a beach town in southern Connecticut, Jill Eberle began modeling for noted
artist and teacher Robert Brackman as a teenager. Lingering in the studio after
classes, she became enamored of the oily smell and the process of painting. But
college led her to Ithaca, New York and a different direction: her initial
training was in set design and painting for theatre.
many others on a journey in the arts, Eberle found herself engaged in a
remarkable number of occupations including being a scene painter, prop builder,
illustrator, architectural draftsman, counselor and sailmaker. Over decade of
work in New York City was followed by a six-year stint in the Caribbean living
on a sailboat. While there, she began using the skills she had gathered over
the years to start painting.
returning to the United States and settling in North Carolina, Eberle attended
East Carolina University where she received the Armstrong merit scholarship and
earned her MFA in 2003. The university hired her upon graduation as an Adjunct
Professor. She currently teaches a variety of classes in drawing, painting and
artistic anatomy while maintaining a studio practice and exhibiting her work
throughout the region.
