Jill Allan

Sessional Faculty

Craft + Emerging Media

I think of myself as a hybrid: designer/craft-maker/artist. I love the idea of crossover between these different approaches to working.

Originally from Vancouver Island, Jill Allan is an artist and instructor teaching in the glass area at Alberta College of Art and Design. She travelled to Ohio in 2011 to undertake her MFA at Bowling Green State University and graduated in 2013.

She has worked to design, make and promote her own work as an artist since graduating from ACAD in 1999. Her work can be found in the collection of ACAD Calgary, the Corning Museum of Glass New York, Kirkwood Community College Iowa, and the Canadian Craft Museum, Vancouver.
