Artist Life in her School Bus Conversion


Gillian’s school bus conversion, “Jungle” has more color than most 2,500-square-foot homes! She left her career in set design, her 16-hour days, and her long commutes to NYC and LA to enjoy life as an entrepreneur on the road.

Gillian’s bus features tons of her own textile work (much made from ice tie-dye techniques), an oven, an oversized couch that doubles as a guest bed, and tons of jungle-y accents like bamboo curtains and bold peel-and-stick wallpaper. She does pop-up shops wherever she parks and sells her art along with vintage and thrift goods she finds during her travels.

      She stated in the youtube video comments, quote:

      “The composting toilet pulls out from under my bed and I shower using a solar shower bag. mostly outside in a swimsuit and I have an indoor set up that packs away for city dwelling.”
