Toria Hill is a contemporary painter living in Willis Tx. She Currently works out of her studio at Winter Street Studios located inside the Sawyer Yards Art Campus in Houston Texas.
She wasn’t an artist growing up – her older brother was. Some of her fondest memories as a teen are of sneaking out of the house in the middle of the night to go tag walls with him. As he pursued his art career, Toria graduated from Sam Houston State University with a degree in Criminal Psychology. It wasn’t until her brother passed that she picked up her first paintbrush and the rest, as they say, is history. She enrolled in Art classes at her local college and then attended Arrowmont School Of Craft in Tennessee to study under professional working artists.
Today she creates large, bold, vibrant paintings using spray paint, acrylic ink, charcoal, found words and images. She rarely uses a paintbrush but instead floods her canvases with layers of ink to create luminous works of art. What inspires her is what lies beneath the human being – their thoughts, desires, and hidden motives. Her works, whether a portrait or an abstract, are designed to explore the subconscious mental processes of her subjects or of the viewer. Her color choices are a direct result of her psychology degree and are designed to invoke a dopamine response in the viewer.
Her first show, in 2013, was a group show at Clendennen Galleries in Houston Texas. Her work has been accepted into juried art festivals across the United States and juried gallery shows where she has won awards for her work. Her “HERO SERIES” garnered much media attention during 2020 and she has recently been profiled in a book entitled “50 ARTIST HOUSTON”.
