Rowan  Hill

Rowan Hill was fortunate enough to be born into a family who supports creativity and loves a good adventure. Her early years were spent living in a variety of locations from the moors of Scotland to the mountains of Colorado and Western Canada. While attending Prescott College in Arizona, Rowan studied geography, creative writing and photography. Long hours were spent in the dark room developing her interest of shape and value. Rowan then settled with her husband in Canmore, Alberta, and took up a paintbrush. Attending a variety of workshops from acclaimed artists fueled her passion for painting while she navigated the challenges of raising a family. As a member of the Canmore Artists’ and Artisans’ Guild, Rowan has participated in numerous group and juried shows. She is also a member of the Oil Painters of America and the Federation of Canadian Artists.

Rowan Hill Description

ARTIST STATEMENT “It all starts with a story, an idea, a concept. I’ll see something and want to explore it further. While working with shapes, values and colour, I try to keep this initial inspiration as my focus. I also get very excited about ‘happy accidents’ that occur in a painting. On smaller pieces, when thick wet paint in pure colour mixes on the canvas, magical things can happen. On larger pieces I work more in layers. Painting around previous marks and drips and scumbling wet over dry tends to create unique surprises. In the end, I hope the viewer sees in the painting something of themselves and their own story.”
