Lenore Ramm Hill - Finding My Way Back to Art

​Born in Durham, North Carolina, I started drawing at an early age, obsessively copying book covers, drawing the cats, and attempting anatomically incorrect drawings of horses. At the age of 8, I took drawing classes for kids at the Durham Arts Council. At age 11, I took adult botanical illustration classes at the NC Botanical Garden with Ruth Brunstetter, with whom I studied for 7 years. My mother grew up in a florist’s shop and studied Horticulture, so plants and flowers were already an important aspect of my life. Ruth taught me how to use gouache (opaque watercolor) and render the realistic style with which I paint today. I learned from Ruth the stippling technique (lots of dots) for shading in her pen and ink works. For three years, I took art classes at Orange High School with Elizabeth Dell-Jones. From her, I remember learning the most about rendering reflected liight, which is what really enables a painting to "pop."

When I was 17, I started a jewelry business, using sterling silver and gold-filled wire with semi-precious stone beads. At age 18, ​I ​became the youngest working member of Womancraft, in Chapel Hill, an artists’ coöperative, where ​I sold​ my​ jewelry and botanical illustrations. I still make many of the jewelry designs I made over 25 years ago, but others evolved over time, as I continued to experiment.

Upon matriculating at Duke University, ​I​ realized how much ​I ​ wanted to be able to afford groceries and enjoyed programming, so ​I​ earned a bachelor’s in Computer Science. ​I ​was a software engineer and IT Analyst at IBM and Duke University, respectively, for 18 years and painted very little during that time.

In September of 2018, ​I ​resigned from my position at Duke and ​am ​now focusing primarily o​n my​​ art​, using watercolors, gouache, colored pencils, and ink. I'm also making more jewelry than ever. I originally joined Etsy in 2009, but I've never been able to devote as much time as I've wanted to my shop until now.

I live in Hillsborough, NC with my husband, Jack.​ He tapes all the shipping labels to the packages. He also is an excellent cook and ensures that I'm not a starving artist after all. ;)

Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that while I try to make the photography as accurate as possible, the accuracy of the colors displayed depends on the monitor being used to view the shop. I hope that multiple photos showing the jewelry with various backgrounds and under various lighting conditions will give you an idea of the actual colors, but I can't guarantee it. In addition, the stone beads are not man-made and may vary from the one ones shown in the images.

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

I decorate each box of jewelry with the hope that they won't need additional gift wrapping. It's more sustainable, since the boxes are reusable. I enjoy decorating them more than you would imagine! Please let me know at checkout if you would prefer that the boxes be decorated with holiday themed colors.

Custom and personalized orders

Simple substituions are great. I can make my designs with so many other stones, if I have the stones in stock. (just ask!) I can also make most designs in either sterling silver or gold filled, with minimal changes, if any. I can also alter the length of a necklace or bracelet. If you want a completely new design or a significant alteration, I may charge a design fee, based on the amount of time required to settle on the design. If you know exactly what you want, that helps! Also, if you've looked through all my jewelry and you don't like anything you see, that may be a sign that you should be working with a different artist.
