Ria Hills in The Artist’s Magazine

Ria Hills

The artist of the month for March 2010 in The Artist’s Magazine is Ria Hills. Ria is a self-taught contemporary pastel painter, born in The Netherlands, raised in New York and presently living in rural Massachusetts. From 2006 she is a daily painter and you can see her progress on the blog almost daily.
Here is what Ria says about her art “It keeps me balanced and happy. If I’m not painting, I’ll write or learn a new craft to satisfy the creative need. Painting also gives me a sense of self worth and confidence that I don’t get anywhere else. There are days when I lose my direction and wonder if I should continue. What keeps me going is the feedback I receive from collectors. The knowledge that a simple painting can uplift the spirit of another person makes it all worthwhile.”
