This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Landscape painter Evelyn Corthell Hill was born on May 4, 1886, in Laramie, Wyoming, dying there eighty-eight years later on October 1, 1974. she was known primarily for scenes of Wyoming, although she also painted in Colorado.

Hill was one of those people seeking a continual education in art. She began with study under Monona Van Cise in her early teens, later attending, in 1900-1905, the University of Wyoming, Laramie. In 1908, she earned a B. A. degree at Wellesley College, Massachusetts.

While raising five children, she also studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Illinois, 1918; summer school of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Chester Springs, 1924; the Arts Students League, New York City, 1928, 1934, 1936, 1938, 1940 or 1941; Broadmoor Art Academy, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, 1932, 1938 or 1939; and, over a period of thirty years at the University of Wyoming, 1920s-1957.

Hill had sporadic teaching assignments: in 1906, at a rural school near Centennial, Wyoming; in 1909, at the LaPash School, Wyoming; and in 1928, 1929, at the University of Wyoming, teaching landscape classes. From 1909-1911, she also served as general manager and editor of the Laramie "Boomerang" newspaper. Ultimately, she was a resident of Laramie. Hill also involved herself in civic activities, including city council membership, 1955-1959. In 1958 she received the Laramie Daily-Boomerang-Laramie Lions Club civic contribution award.

Hill created more than one thousand oils, watercolors, and drawings during her career, mostly of Wyoming. In 1927, her painting, "The Hump", was praised by a reviewer at the Chicago No-Jury Society of Artists exhibition, and later by French critics. In 1942, "Sheep Ranch, Wyoming", toured nineteen Latin America countries as part of a traveling exhibition. Other titles of Hill's work include Laramie Plains; Centennial; Wood's Landing; Garden of the Gods; Old Sartoris Ranch; and Crow Creek Hills.

Other exhibitions of Hill's work took place at the Society of Independent Artists, New York; NAWPS, New York; National Exhibition of American Art, New York; Denver Art Museum; Springville Museum of Art, UT; GGIE; and Watercolor Society of Alabama, Montgomery. Her work is in the collection of the University of Wyoming.
