Artist Biography and Resume

Jillian Zausmer Goldberg

Born and raised in Cape Town South Africa, Jillian attended the Michaelis School of Art at the University of Cape Town. She studied art education under Stephen DeVilliers and taught private and public school art for children for over thirty years. Jillian founded the Gifted and Talented Development Center of Charlotte, North Carolina in 1984. Through innovative summer camps, art schools and outbound arts programming in the Charlotte and Triangle NC areas, the Center served thousands of children, many of whom returned to teach in the programs as adults in later years. Jillian brought the internationally renowned Monart Drawing method to North Carolina, operating seven licensed Monart schools in Charlotte and the Triangle. She is also a certified Monart Draw and Learn teacher trainer and has conducted professional development workshops for county school systems in five states.

In recent years Jillian has returned to painting and drawing, studying acrylic paints and mixed media. Her childhood memories of growing up in a small fishing village on the South African Cape coast, inform her color choices and compositions. Her nostalgia for a land of breathtaking natural beauty, where oceans, cliffs, soaring mountains, lush valleys and endless, remote deserts are the backdrop to everyday life, prove stronger as the years go by.

In Cary, North Carolina, where she and her husband now live, Jillian is represented by the Village Art Circle Gallery in historic downtown Cary. As a founding member of the ChromaZones Abstract Expressionist group, her work can be seen an many venues around Raleigh. Jillian has studied in Raleigh with Bob Burridge, Marty Baird, Leslie Pruneau and Ben Williams and at the Springmaid Watermedia Workshops with Dr. Harold Gregor and at Kanuga Watermedia with Maureen Brouillette. In 2011 Jillian was invited to create instructional DVDs on drawing skills, by Burning Oak Studios. These are distributed by Jerry's Artarama. In 2014, after several years of critiques with legendary art historian and curator Ben Williams, she wrote and published a biographical sketch, Benjamin Forrest Williams, available on Amazon.
