Jillifar Amor

As Valerie Jillifar A. Wilkinson, she was born at 21 Manor Road, Barnet, Hertfordshire in 1939, daughter of Alfred Lashbrook Wilkinson (14 October 1899-25 March 1994), master artist in stained glass, and his wife Blodwen née Davies (1904-1977), who married at Barnet in 1935. Studying embroidery, dress and millinery design at Barrett Street Technical College, now The London School Of Fashion, she began a career in Merchandising and Display for a number of clients in London before opening her own boutique in Surrey and running this enterprise for nearly three decades. She married at Watford, Hertfordshire in 1965, Dennis C. Amor (born 1932) and works under the name of Jillifar Amor. Jillifar and her husband moved to Suffolk in 2000 and set up a studio and now experiment with textures, textile embroidery, oils, pastel, acrylic, and water colour, creating innovative work depicting the Suffolk coast and skies. As an admirer of Harry Becker [q.v.], she is a member of the IBBAS-Inspired by Becker Art Society and a member of Suffolk Open Studios from Capons Green Farm, Dennington, near Woodbridge, Suffolk. http://ibbas.co.uk/artists/jillifar-amor
