Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Jill Hadley Hooper

#48: Jill Hadley Hooper

The work of artist/illlustrator Jill Hadley Hooper can be seen nationally in the pages of the New Yorker and the New York Times, but here in Denver, she's just one of us. Hard-working and community-minded, the 2007 Westword MasterMind in the fine arts category helped found the thriving River North Arts District (aka RiNo) with fellow artist and neighbor Tracy Weil in 2006 and runs the gallery and gardens at Ironton Studios. How does she manage a stellar solo career while promoting solidarity in the arts community at large? Read Hooper's 100CC questionnaire for answers.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
