Hi I'm Jill, the Owner and Creator of Kids Creations. Vermont has been my home for over 10 years now but my accent gives my original roots away,
(No, you can't Pahk Ya Cah in Hahvahd Yahd),.........good ole Boston.
My life has always revolved around art and children. A graduate from Northeastern University with a BS in Business and minor in Art. I moved to NYC to pursued my accountant degree and took jobs within the Art /Design industries including Pace Gallery, Dior , and MJM Creative Marketing. City life was exhausting and the mountains called to me. I took an accountant job at Okemo Mtn, and then Sugarbush Resort. Vermont's life style and people instantly had my heart. Eager to join and give to my community, I decided to open an art studio in 2017, called Kids Creations.

"Hi, I’m Cece! You may recognize me from Sugarbush Day School, or, more recently, holding down the fort at Collaborative Brewing. I began working with young humans at Moretown’s MECA after-school program, and was a substitute teacher around the valley schools 2011-14. I’ve spent years as a one-on-one care provider for special needs individuals, and no matter who I’m with, artistic creation has been an integral part of every relationship I’ve had in my educational/caretaking experience. I joined up with Jill at Kids Creations this summer and I’m so excited to be witness to and aide in the awesome art your children will create! "
