Michael John Hill
Michael John Hill lives and works in the same town where he was raised: Bighton, Sussex, in England. His talent and interest in art developed early in life, but his only formal training came during his primary years in school. Considered a self-taught artist, Hill's endless details in traditional landscapes recall the styles of the old masters.
Hill blends air, water and earth to recapture the early morning mist and sunlight known in England. His landscapes gracefully depict serenity and peace.
Hill uses a combination of oil and acrylic paint to achieve his signature effects. Careful selection of undertones and canvas add to the painting's atmosphere. The impressions of changing natural light can be seen throughout the day in his artwork.
To the artist, his detailed trees depict people in his life. For example, a cluster of larger and smaller trees may represent a family. Many trees are painted with entwined limbs, representing a loving couple. Ultimately, Hill leaves it up to the viewers to draw from their own lives and determine meaning in his paintings.Collectors of Hill's work include the British Royal Family, the Sultan of Brunei, the Malaysian Royal Family, Buzz Aldrin and once occupied the East Wing of the White House in Washington D.C.
