I'm a versatile painter of romantically traditional, provocatively imaginative and just plain fun works.
Biography: Artist Bio Linda Hill was raised in Moss Point, MS, as an only child, which gave her PLENTY of time to develop solitary skills, like art. Her first sentence was "I wanna write" because she’d never heard the word draw before that day. Her mother gave her a marker and some paper and the rest is history. She’s been painting, drawing and being creative since. Later in life, she stayed close to home to go to MGCCC to receive her first special honors tassel in Fine Art. She got her second tassel and BFA from University of South Alabama, where she studied under greats like Sumi Putman and Ben Shamback. She had two majors: Painting and Psychology. After both her parents turned ill, she hurriedly graduated in 2003 with one degree, a BFA, so they both could be there. Her dream was to be a psychologist, healing by working art into her practice, but somehow life has turned out that she’s an artist who works therapy into the mix, instead. The reworked dream turned into “Art with Heart in Mississippi”, her non-profit organization in which she and others offer art classes, therapeutic art, workshops, murals and art fair/fundraising advice to everyone who wants it. The organization is about sharing the miraculous benefits of creation and being creative. She gives talks on art therapy on request, volunteers at the Moss Point Rec center, Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Nonviolence and local public schools. Currently, Linda and her husband, photographer Stephen Hill, reside in Moss Point and go to art fairs and shows. They can’t keep the fun to themselves and invite others to join them. Linda loves all 2-d media, watercolor, oil, acrylic, and pastels. She’s been published on book covers, in magazines and is collected in public and private collections. Her artwork ranges from surrealistic expressionism to impressionism to realistic still lives and portraiture.
