Meet Our Creative-in-Chief

My name is Kim Hill. I’m the Creative-in-Chief at Violets & Sunshine. I live in Washington DC with my husband, Brian, and our quirky basenji, Tristan. I have two college-age children who come home now and then, bringing with them laundry, laughter, and just the right amount of chaos. I'm a largely self-taught artist (there were a couple of drawing courses in college a few decades ago, but that's pretty much it) who has been creating all my life. I work with a variety of media and have been stitching since I was 8 (more than a few decades ago). I love to wander about the country and the world with Brian experiencing the wonders and the whimsies of this beautiful planet and her inhabitants. When I’m not wandering (or sometimes when I am), I am designing new patterns or charting old ones, stitching, drinking all the coffee, taking photos, reading good books, journaling, hanging out with friends, and generally enjoying this life that I've been given.
