Emelyn Hill – Surrey Artist.
Yesterday, whilst out taking a walk with my wife, we paid a visit to an art exhibition being held by one of our neighbors who is currently taking part in a County wide art festival of open studios (Surrey Open Studios).
The artist’s studio that we visited belonged to Emilyn Hill. By coincidence, I knew this lady through my dog walking; but hadn’t known until now that she was an artist. Her work is very good and very interesting. Influenced by surrealism and cubism she has done a lot of work turning famous painting in to three-dimensional sculpture then re-arranging it and re-painting it. Her work is very varied as can see from free her brochure and postcard. Sadly she is now in late stages of MS which is restricting her physical abilities; but she is still working, producing smaller pictures and painting on to furniture.
my wife and I both agreed that Emilyn Hill’s work was truly inspiring.
