Ever since I was a little kid I wanted to make picture books. I finished my first one in the fifth grade. Many years later I attended the Rhode Island School of Design and focused on children’s illustration and animation. My passion for creating narrative artwork has afforded me a career as an illustrator, fine artist, animator and children’s author. I love making pictures and scenes that tell stories with humor and often a bit of the dark side. I work in a studio with four other illustrators in the Pencil Factory in Brooklyn, NY.

“Hill’s evocative illustrations, done in gouache with “digital retouching,” invite viewers to linger over each scene. Color is used sparingly until the last few double-page spreads, when spring arrives.” — Booklist for ‘Spring for Sophie’
“With quirky comic style illustrations this seafaring quest is anything but dull. Ahoy there!” — WRD magazine for ‘Jolly Regina’
“Hill’s graphic-style illustrations support the story and extend its humor.” — Library Journals for ‘Percy and TumTum: A Tale of Two Dogs’
