About Skip Hill:
«Skip Hill creates lyrical collage paintings and drawings that weave a rich tapestry of aesthetic styles, languages and philosophies rooted in cultures around the world. Embracing the African-influenced modernist idiom, Hill explores patterns, images and forms drawn from cultural sources as diverse as comic books, outsider folk art, tribal textiles, Japanese Ukiyo-e prints, Asian calligraphy, graffiti, and Art History to produce his art. His iconic collage paintings of crying prophets, haiku divas, ghetto geishas, dancing bulls ornately adorned elephants are directly influenced by his years spent living in Thailand and the Netherlands and traveling to exotic places around the world, as well of his deep studies of Religion, Art History and the African-American experience. Although primarily a self-taught artist, Hill has studied under the Native American conceptual artist, Hachivi Edgar Heap of Birds, and abstract painter George Bogart, at the University of Oklahoma. He has participated in several solo and museum group shows and curated and created an installation for the exhibition “Casting Stones” at the Ford Jones Museum of Art.»- JRB Art at the Elms

A self-proclaimed color addict and artist, 29-year-old Tiffany McKnight is the author and illustrator of Nuveau: The Future of Patterns, a coloring book for pattern lovers published by Penny Candy Books. Her art is inspired by African textiles, art nouveau, biology, and the vibrant flora and fauna she experienced growing up in southern Miami, FL. Raised in Tulsa, OK Tiffany moved to OKC and received her BFA in Studio Art with a focus in printmaking from the University of Oklahoma in 2012.

She currently resides in Oklahoma City and continues to expand her vivid style through an array of media. You can find her patterns recently published on the labels of certain flavors of San Francisco’s own Clearly Kombucha and on luxury wallpaper produced in collaboration with SixTwelve and Ketch Design Centre. Tiffany was recently named a 2016 Angel Award recipient that acknowledges unsung heroes who have given themselves to effect positive change in the lives of others.
