Artist Kim Hill
From The Studio: Wild Goose Chase By Kim Hill
The focus of Kim’s life is to create powerful, striking paintings which invoke a yearning for the best of what God’s creation offers.
Kim Hill was born and raised in rural New England. She began studying with Sidney F. Willis, a Boston School artist, at age 16. This experience set in stone her desire to pursue and develop her lifetime love of painting.

Kim is equally gifted in working with oil, pastel, acrylic and graphite. She currently has membership in the Oil Painters of America, signature membership in Pastel Society of the Southwest, and the American Women Artists. Her work is shown at the Dutch Art Gallery, Dallas, TX, the R.S. Hanna Gallery, Fredericksburg, TX, and The Gold Leaf Gallery, Tyler, TX.
