Jennifer Hill is a studio artist in Austin TX. Previously she lived on The Garden Isle of Kauai, inspired by the luscious flora and textures of the sea. Her artwork has appeared in numerous exhibitions throughout the country, including the notable Hawaii's Modern Masters in Waikiki. More recently in Austin she exhibited in the two-person show Seen & Unseen at the Julia C. Butridge Gallery and was awarded an EAST fellowship by Big Medium. This fall she was invited to create a solo exhibition and workshop for the Studio Gallery at Brookhaven College, Dallas TX.
She earned an MFA in ceramics from Utah State University, Logan, and a BFA from Southern Methodist University in her home city of Dallas. Between degree programs Jennifer attended the University of Florida, Gainesville for a post-baccalaureate study. Following graduate school she became the artist-in-residence at Chester Springs Studio in Pennsylvania, later moving to Oregon to teach at Portland Community College and Multnomah Art Center. An opportunity to live in Hawaii convinced her to leave the mainland for five years. Jennifer and her husband now live back in Texas closer to family. Currently she maintains a busy studio practice in Austin and teaches at area art centers including The Contemporary Austin's Art School at Laguna Gloria.
