Jill Emery (born 1962) is an American artist and former musician based in Los Angeles, California. Best known as the bassist for the alternative rock band Hole from 1990 until 1992, Emery left the band after the subsequent tour for the band's debut album, Pretty on the Inside (1991), and was replaced by Kristen Pfaff in 1993. Prior to joining Hole, she played in Super Heroines from 1981 to 1988, and her later career saw her perform in Mazzy Star from 1993 to 1996 while also in Teardrain from 1994 to 1995.

Emery is now an artist, independently distributing her work. Most of her work is acrylics on canvas, though recently she has been experimenting with aceo in her art. The theme of Emery's art "deals with emotions whether through people, self or animals and nature, and how it's all connected." A painting by Emery is featured on the back of Hole's album Pretty on the Inside.[1]
