A native of Star Valley, Wyoming, Bill L. Hill is today one of the most prominent painters of the American West. His "Humanities Series" explore the western life of his time. Hill sees his world as a beautiful land, which he has captured over the decades in light, color and motion. He paints in pure intensities with a strong impressionistic style that lends itself aggressively to his choice of western themes. His integrity as both a man and a painter emerges in his varied work. Hill is as comfortable in the clay medium as he is in oil on canvas and has produced some outstanding larger-than life-size bronze commissions based on pioneer themes.In his secluded studio at the base of a soaring mountain range, Hill continues to paint and sculpt what he knows best: the American West. For the 2002 Winter Olympics, Hill painted three theme paintings of earlier native and pioneer inhabitants of the Utah Olympic venues. Hill's outstanding use of color and story telling abilities make him one of the best artist today.
