About the Artist


Jilli Rose 

After brief careers as a croupier, archaeological scientist, and printing press assistant, Jilli learned how to animate and has been gleefully making things move ever since.

She is drawn to places and subjects where art and science collide and is currently making a suite of animations based on her 2014 residency at Casey Station in Antarctica.
