Bettina Hill


Bettina’s work engages with the artistic qualities of materials and objects common to her everyday experience. This is achieved by experimentation with the physical and aesthetic characteristics of common materials; the transformation and re-presentation of ordinary objects and events. She aims to encourage her audience to value ordinary moments in their immediate environment.
