Once in a blue moon we see a painting so enticing we can’t help but dream of leaping right in like the sidewalk drawings in Mary Poppins. Meet Canadian born artist JANET HILL —a painter whose works spur such enticement. Each of Hill’s oils has an elegant allure that demands to be noticed—stolen moments, rare beauty, a peek inside a treasured room. She began studying oil painting and fine art at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, and now her work rests happily in the private collections of big names on both sides of the Atlantic. Thankfully for those of us on a budget, her Etsy shop is still a favorite source for prints, and the master painter is always on the prowl for new subjects. We sat down with Hill to find out if her world mirrors the charm and polish of those she paints. To our delight, she’s as quick as she is talented and, of course, just as glamorous. matchbook
