Linda Hill discovered the joy of making art in midlife. She made this amazing discovery while pursuing a satisfying and successful career that had nothing to do with art—or at least not the visual kind—and a whole new world opened up to her.
Linda was a newspaper reporter in West Texas before coming to Washington, DC, to work in the U.S. Senate. After leaving Capitol Hill, she worked in communications, policy and administrative positions in the Department of Health and Human Services. She retired as a senior executive at the Social Security Administration.
As an artist, Linda has explored a variety of art media, including basket making, crazy quilting, decorative pillows, and various types of mixed media. Along the way she discovered “free form crochet,” using crochet to make flowers and other shapes. She loves blending the many colors and textures of yarns and other fibers, and then embellishing them with buttons, beads, trims, or whatever else she comes across. She also enjoyed the abstract painting that has occupied much of her artistic energy in the past few years, but has pretty much returned to her love of free-form fiber art.
