Jill Thwaites now lives pleasantly just across from the sea in the North-east of England, but was born in a Shire-like location out in the country. She had been neglecting art in favour of writing until she was suddenly introduced, via Peter Jackson's films, to the amazing and wondrous world of Tolkien. Now drawing is all consuming - inspiration for it is tremendous and endless - and she is rarely without a pencil in her hand. Some of her drawings have appeared in Amon Hen and Mallorn, she has had work displayed at Tolkien 2005 and Oxonmoot, as well as at a bookshop in Cornwall, and she has been doing work to be featured online for Michael Kennedy of the Tol Harndor smial in Australia.
