About

The story behind Hillfolk

Hi I'm Beth Hill, artist and owner of Hillfolk Illustration. I always wanted to make a living doing something creative, and initially studied Fine Art at uni, before training as an Art teacher and eventually settling into a career as a graphic designer 15 years ago. I now work part time as the lead creative for a local authority.

I set up Hillfolk in 2015 after creating a portrait for my mum of all her grandchildren, replicating their exact outfits and adding little details such as a favourite teddy or comforter. I was already doing bits and bobs of freelance design to supplement my day job, but realised illustration might be a much more rewarding way to both satisfy my creative needs and make a bit of money at the same time! Since then I have developed my style to make my portraits even more customised and added a range of prints aimed at big and little kids too.

I'm always happy to customise any of my prints, should a customer require something in particular. I hope you like my work - I love creating it!

Frequently asked questions

I would like to order a custom portrait, how long will it take?

Please check my shop announcement for current turnaround times. This timescale is for a first draft, so please factor in time for any amendments, printing, framing and postage.

What information will you need to produce a custom portrait?

If you purchase a custom portrait, I will send you a form where you can list things such as a person's height, eye colour and the clothes etc you wish to include. It also has some tips for selecting the best photos to send me.

I would like to personalise one of your prints - is this possible?

Yes, certainly! If you would like to change / add some text to a print, or have it in a different colour please get in touch with me before purchasing and I will be happy to help.

What frames do you offer?

There are two options for frames: a readymade frame in A4 or A3 sizes with a 20mm moulding in black or white wood finish, or a superior custom made frame with an internal mount, in a wide range of finishes. All frames use styrene instead of glass, which safer to deliver as it doesn't crack or break in transit.

All my frames are produced by an award winning Fine Art framer in the UK, the quality of their work is really amazing!

What paper / ink do you use?

All my illustrations are produced as giclee art prints on archival quality 230gsm matt paper.

This paper is perfect for reproducing strong, vivid colours and guarantees a pleasing and high quality appearance that is reliable and long lasting, even under extreme conditions.
