Artist, painter, instructor, jewelry maker, cool person
This week I sit down with Jill Sattler, a fascinating fixture of Santa Barbara for some time. Here's an except from her bio:
Jill Sattler is a free-lance photodramatist and painter in Santa Barbara, California. She is an honor graduate of Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles. As a portrait photographer she specializes in “atmospheric” photographs and special effects...Jill Sattler has had the privilege to photograph the internationally acclaimed ceramicist Beatrice Wood, Chantal of “Good Morning America” and her dog Mollie, actresses Sandy Duncan, Betty White, as well as Susan and Jeff Bridges, Christopher Reeve, and Santa Barbara writers Jane and Robert Easton...Her jewelry has appeared in Vanity Fair, Ladies’ Home Journal, Memories Magazine (front cover), Los Angeles Magazine, Santa Barbara Magazine, Montecito Magazine, Style 1900 Magazine, as well as the Los Angeles Times and other publications. Jill has the honor of having more than 100 of her photographs on permanent exhibit at UCLA Medical Arts Center in Los Angeles.

Now that only gives you a rough outline of our conversation, which has more name dropping than when I annually chuck the Yellow Pages in the recycle bin.

Here's a tiny photo of her house, because it's a really magical place:
