Faith Humphrey Hill











Knit paintings?! Yes please! Happy to have Faith Humphrey Hill and her amazing work on the blog today. Vibrant color and texture, in addition to some amazing drawing and rendering skills!

Faith Humphrey Hill creates drawings and hand knit paintings inspired by research in the visual arts. Ms. Humphrey Hill is drawn to representational artwork that embraces the interconnectedness of us all. Figurative work including portraits are a common subject fueled by a curiosity for artists working in various times and media. Neuroaethetics, art theory, art history, psychology of art, creativity studies, and artist interviews are all sources of inspiration to the artist. Ms. Humphrey Hill retained a studio practice through a 20 year career in the arts in which she held leadership positions in galleries, school, museums, community art centers, as well as served on non profit boards and municipal art committees.

If you are also fascinated by the texture and colors in her knit paintings, keep reading for further insight:


In a world overly focused on how different things clash, Faith Humphrey Hill’s “Knit Paintings” celebrate the beauty that emerges when things are combined....In addition to integrating drawing and knitting visually, Faith brings together traditional and modern processes when creating the artwork. She first identifies engaging subjects through online networks, then draws them free hand using digital tools. Using software she generates a multi-color knit pattern from the drawing, which she then hand-knits before digitally combining into the final piece. The work is shared through her website, dartily.com and printed in limited edition for exhibition.

Faith’s work communicates a sense of unity created by the dance of the familiar and foreign, earthy and electric, real and virtual. Knit paintings are Faith Humphrey Hill’s way to express how disparate elements can be integrated into a beautifully cohesive whole.

Sarah Ammons

Beautiful brushwork, color, patterns, portraits, graphic line quality, botany, we love every aspect of Sarah Ammons' work!  

Sarah was born and raised east of Toronto, Canada, on a beach on Lake Ontario. Sarah became interested in art at a young age, spending every available minute drawing, and developing her techniques. After high school, she spent a year in an interdisciplinary liberal arts program in Halifax, Nova Scotia, at the University of King's College, studying Western literature and philosophy. During this time, she kept an avid practice of her journaling and sketching, weaving together a visual language which combined her reflections on philosophy, life and existence. Following this introspective year, she earned a BFA at Queen's University in Kingston Ontario, graduating in 2012. She began to sell and exhibit her paintings in Toronto, learning about the business side of being an artist. Sarah completed her MFA in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in 20…

KC Christmas

I (Lisa) first saw the work of KC Christmas on Instagram a couple summers ago. Danielle Krysa’s Art For Your Ear podcast had recently began the short lived #AFYEcamp series, which were themed art projects based on that week’s podcast. I was scrolling the Instagram feed under #AFYEcamp and came across something unlike anything I had ever seen, a beautifully rendered portrait featuring sprinkles! I experienced my own moment of “damn, I wish I had thought of that.” Upon further research, I discovered more work of an intelligent, hardworking, and insanely talented young woman, who was creating clever collages and funny paintings. 
KC was an obvious choice for our first blog feature. She was our first follower on Instagram and first submission. Thank you for believing in our project and being featured!

KC Christmas is a contemporary painter and collage artist living and working in Aiken, South Carolina. Known for her portraits and food art, she combines the styles of the Old Masters with rel…
