Jill Trappler was born in Johannesburg in 1957. She has worked as an artist and craft person in various projects over the past thirty years. These include, Thupelo, Greatmore Street (she is a founder member of both) and Bag Factory Artists’ Studios. (She was a Board member of all three). Trappler served on the Board of the Ava gallery and the NAC. Trappler also established the Philani weaving project and the Intle cooperative project. She exhibits regularly in group shows nationally and abroad. Her solo exhibitions are numerous and continue to be a priority in her practice. The combinations of project work, teaching and personal practice has a significant impact. Interactive, exchanging skills and ideas with people from diverse backgrounds and experiences plus daily involvement in making art/craft push the levels of creative life style, education and product development.
