I am Beth Hill, owner of Hillfolk Illustration and creator of nature illustrations capturing the beauty of Devon and Cornwall. My background is in Fine Art, gaining a 2:1 at uni back in the 90s. I then trained as an Art teacher and eventually settled into a career as a graphic designer.
I have recently rekindled my love of drawing and now combine the skills I have learned through my day job with my traditional art training to produce illustrations that capture all that is beautiful about this part of the world.
I was born and grew up on a farm in the nearby village of Shaldon, and after uni I returned to live by the sea. As a child, I remember going out and sitting in the fields amongst the cattle drawing the view – it was such a magical place.
I now live in Torbay, which has the most amazing natural landscape – I find it so inspiring! I have always felt happiest amongst natural surroundings, and love nothing better than a walk in the countryside or along the coast.
