Cheryl-Ann Hills is a contemporary visual artist born in Kitchener Ontario, and currently living and working in Hamilton Ontario. Hamilton is unique as it straddles the Niagara Escarpment and provides excellent inspiration for her landscape paintings. The Bruce trail also meanders through the area and is where you can often find Cheryl hiking and painting.
Cheryl has special memories of Owen Sound and Tobermory having spent time at art college in Owen Sound. She also spent many summers hiking the rocky trails of Bruce National Park and visiting the shores of Georgian Bay as well as exploring the beach trails along Lake Huron.
A trip to the Northern shores of Lake Superior in 2018 inspired a large series of oil paintings.
Her most current paintings shown here, feature a brand new painting process Cheryl recently developed which is inspired by the iconic Canadian art of Emily Carr and Lawren Harris, an old sketchbook Cheryl rediscovered and a trip to Northern Ontario in the summer of 2021. This new style highlights the colour and lines of the Canadian landscape and is very popular with her followers.
Cheryl delights in exploring new processes using various media. She consistently pursues new creative ideas and reaches out to her community sharing her love of art and nature.
She is currently accepting requests for commissioned work.
