I’m 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.
In 2018 I rekindled my love of drawing, after capturing a favourite spot – the view of Thatcher Rock from Ilsham Marine Drive. I 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.
I hope you enjoy looking through my work. I’m always looking for new places to capture, so if you have somewhere you would like to see please get in touch!
My work has appeared on the BBC show DIYSOS, and I’ve been featured in the English Riviera Magazine. I am also a Geopark Ambassador Artist, and was commissioned by Artizan Gallery to create an illustration of Beacon Cove, which is displayed at the beach itself.
