Bethanne Hill isn’t trying to create realistic scenes in her paintings. “It’s like storytelling,” she says, “where embellishing with lots of details makes it interesting.”

For Bethanne Hill, the combination of academics and art in her early education was a life-changing experience. “[I] learned to talk and think about art and keep my eyes open all the time as I moved around the landscape for things that would feed into the work,” she says. Bethanne credits her many art instructors with teaching her not only techniques but also how to be an artist.
