Australian Paintings


I am thrilled to announce the release of my latest book. I invite you to step into my world of art where I’ve gone from canvas to page and have created an art book which serves as a window into the soul of Australia.

In this collection of paintings, I showcase a diverse array of my artworks that span from my formative teenage years to recent creations. I’ve always had a profound connection to the Australian landscape and its people, so I offer a glimpse into the rich tapestry of Australian society.

Exploring Nuanced Themes

My paintings delve into a myriad of themes, each one offering a nuanced exploration of Australian identity and culture. From the complexities of black/white relations to the hidden layers of Australia’s past, my art has been described as a powerful mirror reflecting the intricacies of society.

Within the pages of my latest book, you’ll find yourself immersed in the allure of gold discoveries, echoing the dreams and aspirations of generations past. You’ll witness the essence of the land and sea, capturing the breathtaking beauty of Australia’s landscapes in all their glory.

A Journey of Reflection and Contemplation

Amidst the weighty themes, some of my paintings have moments of joy and light-heartedness; there’s even a sense of whimsy and playfulness. As you journey through my pages, you’ll find yourself drawn into a rich narrative  – each painting telling a story of its own.


One reviewer Heather K says:

Marji Hill has the enviable ability to educate and inform in a fascinating and engaging way. Each painting has an interesting story behind it and gives readers glimpses into the author/artist’s history of her work. 

Another reviewer, Diane Ranck says:

As soon as I started, I flicked to the artwork before reading the story, and then back to the art. I like to feel the art before I know the context. I ask myself what mood did I feel? Did Marji depict this? Did the story match? Did art and story engage and enhance? The overwhelming answer is YES! I enjoyed reading the stories all based on historical fact so learning about my country’s history was a bonus! Marji captures the story without bias and without telling the reader and observer how to feel or react. The feelings are invoked by the extraordinary depictions. The early chapters have made me start my own journey of discovery and understanding.

She makes no political statements of her own but grappling with politics and colonial policies is something we are still confronting. Marji leads us into deep thought- we have not learnt from the past. Marji‘s clever storytelling, together with the art helps us distil our own thoughts. In her sections on landscape, one can feel the vibrant rainforest, or feel the searing heat! We can well remember being dared to do things as a child, and Marji‘s cold water plunge reminds me of my childhood too…
