Mixed Media Artist
Deborah Hill is a professional artist using water soluble art materials, collage and found objects interchangeably in her work. She paints imaginative images that are distinct and inventive yet immediately recognizable. Her assemblage/bricolage sculpture reflects the same aesthetic and attention to subtle detail as her two dimensional artwork.
Drawing influence from everyday events, nature and memory, she uses a narrative approach to her work expressing snippets of time or a particular emotion. The artist prefers to convey her story with an interpretation rather than what is physically seen with the eye.
Deborah’s art career began early with wax crayons and large freshly painted sheetrock walls (this was discouraged) quickly moving on to
graphite pencils and wide ruled notebook paper she pressed on, honing her
skills. Life took on new meaning with plastic brushes and a tiny set of pan
paints, the request for paper with no lines was granted-further expanding
potentiality. Her art story continues to unfold as she progresses toward more sophisticated tools and materials.
The artist is from the Appalachian foothills of Alabama, after having lived in Houston, Texas for over twenty years she has moved back to her home state. Deborah's studio is located in historic downtown Fayette, Alabama.
