Artist Statement My name is Charles Hill, and I have been creating art for over 45 years. As a teenager, I studied everything about art technique and theory that I could get my hands on, and I began to develop my own style that was based as much on my own inner sense of design and imagination as on any outer source of reference. Many of my paintings come entirely from my imagination, while other works are focused on outer experiences. At the age of 27, I began to paint full time, and in 1992 I became an Artist-In Residence in Danville Public Schools in Danville Virginia, where I taught art classes in numerous primary schools, as well as creating artwork that supported the regular classroom teachers. During this time, I also began to paint large scale mural projects in numerous schools that were based on the SOL's that were being taught in these schools. I continued as an Artist-In-Residence for 14 years until I returned to college at Averett University in 2006 to pursue a degree in mathematics. I have always considered mathematics as another art form, and I have been studying and working with mathematics recreationally as long as I have been painting. I also obtained a Masters of Mathematics degree from Averett in 2014, and I have taught high school mathematics the last two years. I have also completed numerous mural projects over the last 15 years in churches, businesses and homes, as well as illustrating magazines, and painting furniture for a small manufacturing firm. I paint realistic, surrealistic, and abstract oil and acrylic paintings, as well as realistic pencil drawings that are mainly portraits. I create both commercial and fine art, and I specialize in murals, portraits and landscapes that often have a mystical focus and atmosphere.
