“To be an artist is to love life”

– Kristin Hill

As a professional career aviation artist for four decades, creating fine art oil paintings of aircraft in their environment honed Hill’s understanding of visual language artistic tools. Aviation Art disciplines include study of skies, aircraft, flight, atmosphere, light, color, reflected light, energy, aerodynamics, perspective, engineering, physics, history, human character and storytelling. Hill now applies these artistic skills to a wide range of subjects while keeping her feet on the ground.

“Cloud Dancing, Great Cranberry Island”, oil, plein air, Kristin Hill

“There is a visual language we humans learn while experiencing life on Earth. It is my quest as an artist to decipher this visual language and learn to speak it eloquently as I explore worlds within and without. It could be said that I am finally coming down to Earth as I delve into painting plein air, landscape, still life, human figure, monotype and skyscape subjects.”

– Kristin Hill

Hill’s education includes a BA in Fine Arts, studies with renowned artists, a life full of firsthand unique aviation experiences, the U.S. Air Force Art Program, and the American Society of Aviation Artists – in which she has been active since 1986 and has been the past president.
