Anna Hills (1882-1930)

 

Anna Hills was born in Ravenna, Ohio, in 1882.  She attended the Art Institute of Chicago, Cooper Union in New York, and the Academie Julian in Paris.  Following a four year tour of Europe, Anna Hills settled in the artist colony of Laguna Beach in 1913, where she was a founder and President of the Laguna Beach Art Association.

 

While her early works generally lacked strong color use; that quickly changed upon her arrival in Laguna Beach when her palette brightened up dramatically.  With a style that included palette knife and quick brush strokes, Anna Hills captured the California coast and deserts with poetic eye and left a legacy as a teacher and champion of the early Laguna Beach art colony.  Anna Hills died in Laguna Beach until her death in 1930 at the age of 48.
