Sybil Hill (American 1965 - ) My background as an artist started when I was a child in Texas painting with my father in his studio. His creative edge and guidance influenced me from an early age. My studies have taken me all over the globe from an Art League in Puerto Rico to New York, Italy and France. Man’s link to horses is ancient. So it is no surprise that as an artist I am passionately intrigued with their spirit. Painting hypnotizes me and time is forgotten. My paintings are oil, mixed media collage with vintage papers, newspapers - pages out of old history books (centered on the west) and music sheets. Splashes/drips of mixed media paint over the subject create an energy and a spirit through each piece. Each has its own story. Finally, I apply a clear resin on top to protect the subject and give the abstract feel of a glass sheet. Some paintings contain hidden messages and poetry buried within the collage. I love the horse’s spirit, the clairvoyant energy that envelops them; their eyes evoking an unseen aura of awareness – ancient, timeless. I try to paint this. Sybil Hill has sold and donated over 500 paintings in the last ten years. Her work hangs in prominent collections throughout the world.
