Bigger than life. These 3 words describe Gail Hill’s art, her entrepreneurial spirit, her approach to every project or event and her compassion for friends, clients and colleagues. She brings sensitivity, limitless creativity and innovation then marries that with boldness. She applies this magic formula to every individual work of art she creates or to any project that captures her interest. Gail does not do ordinary on canvas or paper and the “bigger than life” results bring pleasure for years to come.

Gail Hill’s vision as an artist is apparent in every aspect of her life, but most clearly in her painted photographic portraits. Her technique is unique and she brings something else to the portrait that cannot be revealed in a photograph alone. While the photograph she takes shows how her subject appears, it’s when she starts to apply oil paint to that surface that she starts to reveal the character and spirit of what lies beneath. Quite remarkable.
