LPAPA Signature Artist Catherine Hillis
Locust Grove, Virginia
“I was always drawn to the arts. I worked as a child model and actor and was gifted musically. I could draw and paint without effort. Creating art makes me feel good. I’m relaxed and healthy when I paint and if I’m working outdoors, with the sun shining, birds singing and breezes blowing, I cannot be happier.
Our daily lives are hectic. I like to think my work can slow the pace, and make a troubled world feel better as I take a wide view of the chaos and bring focus and order to the pandemonium around me by squinting, and then positioning my pencil and brush onto paper or canvas.” — Catherine Hillis (CatherineHillis.com/about)
