Hill was born and raised in New Orleans, where she attended the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. She graduated from New York University in 2023 with a BFA in fine arts. Hill currently works and resides in Brooklyn. Her work has been featured in galleries and collections across the country in cities including Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and New York.
Hill’s work is inspired by the many communities she’s been a part of. In New Orleans, Spriggins’ early art explored themes of humanity, love, and friendship, both as a black queer artist, and simply as a young woman. Later, in New York, Hill’s art was inspired by ideas of youth, immortality , and grief. Similar to artists like Alice Neel, Nan Goldin, and Patti Smith, Hill aims to document the lives of those around her. Her works serve as an archive of memories and love letters to her subjects. In each of her homes, Hill’s practice has been centered around joy, celebration, and togetherness. She hopes for people to find those same feelings of happiness and relief in her paintings. Her goal is to create work that appeals to everyone, not as a black artist, or a queer artist, or as a woman artist, but as Hill Spriggins, a painter.
