Hi, I’m Jill, a writer and teacher living in the UK, usually behind a desk but sometimes on a sofa with a book or a film. I began writing at around age three, legibly by five, although I didn’t write any stories until I was older. Aged eleven, I began writing children’s fiction, mostly middle-grade fantasy and I’m still doing it to this day. I have had stories published online and in My Weekly magazine. The best bit about writing is when ideas pop into your head (from the writing fairy presumably?) and everything starts clipping together like a jigsaw puzzle. The worst bit? When you start to get the feeling there's a piece missing from the box...

  1. Kush’s life story is much more interesting and inspiring than his purely commercially-oriented paintings ) The Soviet Union, drawing tourists’ faces, Hong Kong, the US, opening four galleries there, finally. Amazing vitality!

    1. I know very little about the artist but love his work and his way of looking at things. I must look a little deeper next time and find out more 🙂

      1. He lives in the States, so info on him should be available in English… His adventures are amazing and I am truly impressed by his eagerness and steadfastness. I don’t like his art though, but please forgive me this snobbish attitude. Beginning with Dali, I think most surrealism is a fraud. But, I have to admit, victimless 😉

      2. I’ll have a read up about him but I have to say I disagree with you about the Surrealism statement. Rather a lot of my blog focuses on surrealist art and my favourite surrealists. For me, surrealism is the only truly interesting art!

      3. Jill, let all the flowers blossom, as Mao used to say. Let our opinions co-exist, for if there’s anything that is less agreeable than art, I’d be surprised ) – Kyrill

    1. You noticed! I’m so glad 🙂 Yes, I managed at last to work out how to get the background right. I like it much better with a bit of colour to it 🙂

  2. Love this! Huge fan of Surrealism, but didn’t know this chap (such a birdbrain). Shall go off and learn a bit more about him.
    Do you ever visit Biblioklept’s blog? He has some awesome art on there sometimes.

    Anyway, great post – thank you!

    1. I love Biblioklept’s blog, he’s amazingly knowledgeable about art and literature! I’m new to Kush myself so we’ll both be learning about him 🙂

  3. Y’know, I nearly featured this painting on the Shoreline recently- thematically, it would have fit right in to my “Easter Egg” post…

    … but despite being a major devotee of Surrealism as you know, I actually strongly dislike Kush’s work… very technically skilled of course, but just so derivative of Dali, and somehow empty… Surrealist art should be pregnant with half-glimpsed meanings and possibilities, and I don’t get any of that from Kush, I’m afraid. The comments above about his biography make him sound more interesting though.

    Erm.. I’m sure I had a point to make aside from just being a grouch.. but maybe not. But enjoying the blog as ever.

    1. Yes, I know what you mean about Kush, he is very derivative, but I like this image. As for including it in your post there was really no need as you’d chosen some eggcellent pictures already…
