DEBORAH R Hill would classify her art as contemporary impressionism. Through differ-ing balances of color, brushwork and paint application, the artist is most focused on enabling the paint to dictate a kind of “visual road map.”
Hill finds inspiration in the depth of color and form in the natural world—rural vistas, beaches, marsh, and fauna supply her subject matter, although she is equally inspired working from a still life.
Having earned a fine arts degree from the University of Buffalo with a concentration in painting, painting is Hill’s passion. She has earned numerous awards, including Best in Show at the 2018 Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition.
Hill works as a full-time artist at studios in Upstate New York and Charleston, South Carolina. Her work is in collections nation-wide as well as overseas. She is represented by LePrince Fine Art at 183 King St. in Charleston.
