Who we are…

Keith Hill, along with his wife Alison, formed Keith Hill Studios in 1992, to exclusively sell his original oil on canvas artwork and limited edition prints. This family-run business has grown over the years, influenced by his boyhood love of local railways and aviation history. Though his links with the USAF presence in the Midlands, Keith has become an internationally known and recognised artist.

Keith's eye for detail and his depiction of real-world stories behind historic events involving the heroic actions of veterans, makes Keith's work truly personal and separates it from the crowd. Over the past 25 years Keith has been honoured to document the actions of military services and personnel across the globe.

Every picture tells a story.
