kit hiller
Kit Hiller was born in Tasmania and educated in Hobart. She trained at the Tasmanian School of Art 1966-69 and was sent to teach art in Burnie High School in 1969, eventually settling on the North-West Coast. She now lives and works at Lower Mt Hicks, a small town near Burnie in the north of Tasmania. Kit has had a most successful career as an artist, and is one of Tasmania’s most loved and recognised printmakers, being named Tasmanian of the Year in 1987. In 1996 she received the Arts Tasmania Grant for the use of a studio in Paris for three months. She has since shown in many individual and joint exhibitions throughout Tasmania and Australia. Although Kit mostly works in the medium of lino cut prints, focusing her imagery on the flora and fauna of Tasmania, she has also become known for her watercolour portraits, which have been shown in the Archibald Prize exhibition on five occasions, and which won the Portia Geach Memorial Award for Women Portrait Painters three times. Now painting in oils, Kit produces landscapes of the North-West Coast of Tasmania, travels overseas, still-lives and portraits. Kit has shown her prints at Handmark Gallery over the last 10 years.
