Series: Personal & Private Rituals
In the 1960s, Suzanne Hill studied Fine Arts at Mount Allison, where her instructor Alex Colville told her, “Suzanne, when in doubt, simplify,” advice that has been crucial to her in her visual arts career. Neither of her parents went to university, and she still appreciates that her father, a practical businessman, encouraged her to follow that path. After graduating, she sold gloves and drapes, drafted telephone systems, and dabbled in what was then called “commercial art”. These experiences provided a great incentive to take a teaching degree from McGill in Art and English, where she was awarded the Lieutenant-Governor’s gold medal. Suzanne, and her husband, Jack, moved to New Brunswick “for just a year or two,” teaching in Saint John. The plan was to return to their home province, Quebec. Some 40 years later they are still here.
