I am a Georgia artist with strong ties to Florida and Alabama. I work in oil and collage and use the computer for some of my early mock ups. I think as an artist we should use all the tools that are available to us to gain an advantage. The market is flooded with artists of all levels, more so than any other time in the history of art.


In this site you will find the artwork of J. William Hill formerly known as Jim or Jimmy to his friends in Florida. I go by J. William these days and have done so for over a decade in the arts community.


Today I share studio space with a group of talented artist at The B Complex in the southwest, Atlanta, Georgia. The studio is always open to visitors, but it is best to call and set up an appointment to insure I am at the complex.

I will be teaching lessons out of my studio at the B Complex in 2018. Please text for more information.

Gadsden Arts 2017

Gadsden Arts Center and Museum

This is one of my latest paintings and part of a new series I am calling "Southern Gothic". The series will explore Southerners (or those I've met in the South) and some disquieting affect they've  had on me.


This will be included in the reconfiguration of my site this spring.

Collaboration with Rose M Barron


These are a few of my new painting that were conceived and produced with Rose M. Barron. The way we work is by developing a tableau first and then photographing the tableau. Rose uses images of the tableau in her photography and I use images we've shot to develop paintings from. Many of my paintings are simply conceived from the overall theme; in this case "madonnas,saints and monsters.
