Jill Höjeberg was born in the USA and studied from 1967 to 71 at the George Washington University in conjunction with Corcoran School of Art and from 1993 to 95 at the Art Students League of New York, USA. She now lives in Stockholm, Sweden and works part of the year in Italy. Her prefered materials are marble from Carrara and alabaster from Volterra, among her masterpieces you also find sculptures in bronze, iron and glass.
