Jillian is well on her way to becoming a middle-school maths teacher. As part of her teacher training, she was required to teach students how to create a tessellation, and to make one herself. As you can see, the results are quite spectacular.

Below is the picture that inspired this tessellation: a photo of her dog, "Nala":
