Hi I’m Beth Hill, artist and owner of Hillfolk Illustration. I always wanted to make a living doing something creative, and initially studied Fine Art at uni, before training as an Art teacher and eventually settling into a career as a graphic designer 15 years ago. Nowadays I work part time as the lead creative for a local authority.
Hillfolk was conceived in 2015, after creating a portrait for my mum of all her grandchildren. The illustration replicated their exact outfits and included little details such as a favourite teddy or comforter. I soon realised illustration might be a rewarding way to satisfy my creative needs and make a bit of money at the same time! Since then I have developed my portrait style and added a range of prints aimed at big and little kids too.
My custom portraits capture families and pets and are personalised with lots of unique details. They make a great keepsake or an ideal wedding, anniversary or birthday gift. I also love to draw cute animals and inspiring quotes suitable for big and little kids.
All my illustrations are available to buy as prints and digital printables and I’m always happy to customise any of my prints, should a customer require something in particular. I hope you like my work – I love creating it!
