Brief Summary
The subjects of Hill’s paintings are as diverse as the Hawaiian paradise in which he lives – beaches, floral, tropics, landscapes and beautiful native people.
As always, the key to Hill’s paintings is the use of light and the emotional comfort and feel of the painting. Hill paintings, which are featured in collections worldwide, capture the moment of light that often reflects a story. They are described as colorful and comforting, warm and inviting and sometimes, courageous.

Professional Experience
Darrell Hill is a resident of Kamuela, Hawaii, but lived most of his life in California, receiving formal training at the College of the Sequoias and his B.F.A. degree from Brook's Institute of Fine Arts in Santa Barbara.

Exposed to art at an early age Hill was very active in art projects throughout school. His travels to Israel, Mexico, Hawaii & Europe have enriched the development of his own unique use of color and design.

- Darrell Hill creates landscapes & design & figurative works. In painting these subjects, Hill has concentrated on observation, especially as it concerns color, light, pattern, form & composition. His paintings have been described as warm and inviting. They invoke a place of restful escape and share a sense of timelessness with the works of other eras.

Hill majored in "painting, printmaking, ceramics and color" in college, but he is accomplished in many different media including acrylic, watercolor and oils. His bold impressionist painting style, influenced by the works of Monet, Van Gough and Gauguin, has been described as "colorful and comforting".
Many have noted that the heart as well as the eye can observe Hill’s creative work.

Hill’s paintings are located in exclusive homes and cooperate offices in Hawaii, England, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Norway and major cities in the mainland.
