A self-taught artist and native of Bucks County, Jill Tarabar’s fascination with the art of stained glass creation began in the early 1980’s. She continued honing her skills as she participated in regional juried art fairs and developed wholesale connections along the east coast. A twenty-year long “break” allowed her to develop graphic design and marketing skills while working full time in marketing. For the past two years, she has been able to focus on stained glass almost exclusively, participating in regional juried fine arts and craft shows and festivals. She also teaches a beginner stained glass course at the Art Center at Ambler.
Jill often pushes the boundaries & ignores the “rules.” Mixing a variety of clear textured glass with bevels and found objects, she’s inspired by nature, spirituality and Judaica. Much of her work consists of functional gift items such as jewelry boxes, Menorahs & Mezuzot . Also an avid knitter, she discovered the art of knitting with wire and is exploring the medium as a way to combine knitting with stained glass.
A juried and board member of the Bucks County Guild of Craftsmen and award winning artist, Jill is proud to present a one woman display of Chanukah Menorahs at the Bucks County Visitor Center this holiday season.
