Hill Young (aka Painted Hill) is an illustrator, graphic designer, muralist, and art teacher living in San Diego, CA. A creator that embraces the strange and most colorful parts of life. Her work is influenced by observing the intricacies and beings in the universe as we know it, as well as dreaming about what could be. She creates nature inspired artistry, realistic and surreal.

"Nature, people, music, dreams and emotions of my life are fed into the kaleidoscope of my brain, shaken up, and end up spilling out the end of my paintbrush in the most intriguing forms!" ~Hill

Watercolor, acrylic and gouache are her tools of choice to bring the fanciful creatures and shapes to life.
