ABOUT THE ARTIST
Hill’s art emerged from her background in nursing. Her sculptures have been
exhibited and reviewed nationally and internationally. She’s received numerous
awards and grants, and taught in a variety of universities, graduate programs,
and community settings.
Hill lived in Scotland several years where her art became community-based.
There, she facilitated community members in building giant puppets for
pageantry. She experimented with the art of clowning, and created life-size
dancing dolls with which she continues to perform.
her art drew her back into service as a pediatric nurse, working in home care
with medically fragile children. Today, her art and nursing merge as she
embarks on creating custom therapeutic dancing dolls for people dealing with
loss and grief. In all of her creative work, the focus has been the integration
of arts into education, healthcare, and community-building.
