An Amazing Artist - Zoe Hill

An Article By Amber Razmus
Talent is defined as having a special natural ability. Our featured artist this month has this and more. Zoe Hill is a self taught artist whose work is intricate, bold and one of a kind. This young shy women lights up when she speaks about her craft. Looking at her work you can understand why. I was able to sit down with her and interview her about what motivates her, how she started and what inspires her.

Amber: How did you discover your talent for art?

Zoe: My parents and art teachers have always told me I was gifted when it comes to drawing, but it took me until the end of high school to discover a style I loved. When I started nurturing that side of myself I could really grasp how I wanted to put my ideas onto paper.

A: Where does your inspiration come from?

Z: I’m inspired by natural patterns mostly. I love the repetitive intricacy of flowers, feathers, fish scales and wood grain. I’d also say a lot of my inspiration comes from mehndi body art.

A: What moves you the most in life?

Z: Simple things. I’m happiest alone or with my close friends and family. I think there’s a whole lot of splendor right there.

A: What technique do you use?

Z: I draw first an outline in pencil, and fill in what I want with watercolor and then ink. I go over it really roughly with eraser afterwards to make all the lines look nice and clean. It takes a couple of hours to get all the detail in the picture, sometimes I go through two or three pens on one drawing.

A: Do the colors you use in your art mean anything?

Z: Yes. I like the straightforwardness of a picture with only two colors. My favorites are generally black and white. But I still like to add a little bit of emotion in with a third color sometimes. And then there’s always experimenting with using no black which is a little scary to me.

A: Do you work on your art certain hours of the day or only when you’re inspired?

Z: I work on art certain times of the year unfortunately. I get to drawing every couple months and fix up a few designs and then that’s all for a while.

A: What is more important to you the subject of your painting of the way it is executed?

Z: A little of both. I like to leave the subject as unchanged as possible, but kind of simplified into an outline. So if I draw a flower, it’s still recognizable, just transformed.
