Member's "face portrait"
Kristin Hill specializes in aviation art, concentrating on fine art oil paintings and custom commissions. Her works depict both the man-made aspects of aviation and the natural environment encountered during flight. In the skyscapes and landscapes she paints, the fleeting beauty and power of the skies and environment in which we live are captured for repeated enjoyment.
Kristin draws upon her formal education in fine arts, experiences in a family aviation business and a broad diversity of flight experiences to paint the richness of flight and the skies we explore. Her firsthand research includes flights in the high altitude U-2, contemporary military fighters, refueling and transport aircraft; World War II fighters and bombers; contemporary, antique, corporate, aerobatic and soaring aircraft; hang gliders, balloon and the parachute canopy. Recognized as an Artist Fellow member of the American Society of Aviation Artists, she has been an artist member since 1987, a president of ASAA and an active participant in the U.S. Air Force Art Program since 1980. More than 250 of her original works are included in museum, corporate, private, foreign and U. S. Air Force collections.
