“Painting has become my way of moving through this world, expressing and responding to what I feel and see. It is my interpretation using color, stroke, and line to evoke the mood I am receiving from the subject in front of me. Whether a person or a landscape, I want to recreate what I am receiving.”
Hill has had several one-artist shows throughout New England and in New York, and has been featured in several articles. Her work was presented in “Women Artists of Monhegan Island Now” at the University of New England in the summer of 2007. She lives and paints on Monhegan Island year round.
