Hill has become a leader in “plein air” painting, traveling all over the world painting on-site and in-the-moment. “I have learned that when I paint, I want it fresh and I want it now,” he says. “Time and place play major roles in how I envision each piece I’m working on.”

“My passion is to find special places, both home and abroad, and explore those with every element of my psyche dialed into the joyous, expressive and interpretive language of painting on-site.”

A big part of Hill’s work includes giving back to the art community. He spent several years as an art teacher and passes along the things he has learned over the years at his workshops.
