Hill is attracted to odd scenes or details that other people overlook. Her eyes are naturally drawn to light and shade and she is fascinated by the way light can transform a scene or an object. She generally takes photographs intuitively in her everyday environment: home, street or local area and her work explores themes of family life, domestic drudgery, the everyday, mindfulness, and beauty in the everyday.
