About Malcolm Hill
Malcolm and his wife Kaye have made their home in the Adelaide Hills, where they have been part of this community for over 33 years.
With an eye for intricacy and subtlety in colour, shade and tone, Malcolm has developed his talent into a real art form, creating numerous brilliant, original tapestries, which depict specific and totally recognizable subjects.
His technique begins with a good photograph, which is then enlarged and graphically represented. Malcolm decides on the precise shade, stitch by stitch, using his many years of artistic experience, as he develops each creation; ultimately achieving realism, accuracy and always an outstanding masterpiece.
Malcolm's vision is for others to experience the enjoyment and fulfillment that comes from producing a quality work of art from a blank canvas. For this reason he has focused on the preparation of tapestry kits, featuring various breeds of pets and other subjects, which appeal to a broad range of people; from those experienced in various forms of tapestry and needlework, to folk who haven't ever tried.
"Counted tapestry is essentially not difficult. If you can count and stitch you can do it", says Malcolm. "The hard work has already been done. It's more accurate than the traditional method, and actually easier too." Colour-blindness doesn't even stop people experiencing great rewards and success with Malcolm's counted tapestries, as the wools are labelled to match the instruction sheet.
It's as easy as A, B, C, but SO much more rewarding!
