Meet the “Artful Spirit”

If you ask Jill Edwards who she is, here’s what she’ll say: “I like to use the term Artful Spirit to describe  myself, it refers to those of us souls who don’t have the option of not creating…. It’s just what we do!”

Jill has lived in the Pella/Knoxville area for 25 years, near Lake Red Rock. Growing up in Minnesota, she enjoyed spending time back on the North Shore of Lake Superior.

“I have been a creative as long as I can remember, always having my hands in something!”  Jill says.

A graduate of North Dakota State University with a degree in Parks, Recreation and Leisure Services, brought her to the Pella Parks, where she worked a seventeen year stretch in grounds-keeping, landscaping and design.

“My love for color really started there with designing and planting flower beds for the parks, golf courses and private homes,” Jill states.

Her love of color shows up in her art.
