“I came to art late in life, at the age of sixty; it’s been a fascinating experience to be a novice at something at this point in my life. I want to express the inner aliveness of things, particularly in the natural world. While I like art that is at least somewhat representational, I am not all that interested in accurate depiction. Rather, what I want to show is the spirit and energy – and even occasionally magic – that is present in every aspect of nature. Since I have started painting, the world looks more beautiful to me. Things sometimes appear almost lit from within, and it’s that inner light that I want to convey. To that end, I often exaggerate color and movement in the scene.”
Marcia Hill has shown her pastel paintings in several venues around Vermont, including the Bryan and Chaffee galleries. She recently won honorable mention at a juried gallery exhibit. While her work is representational, she often exaggerates color and movement in order to convey the spirit and energy of a scene. She is most interested in finding ways to convey nature’s beauty and inner light in paintings.
