Hill studied fashion arts, clothing and textile design at the University of Oklahoma, but developed a passion for evening wear and design growing up in Minco, Oklahoma. Her parents owned a small retail store and spent much time scouting out the fashion markets and embracing the excitement of the fast-paced environment and constantly changing designs and styles. Hill's affection for fashion soon grew into a desire to create gowns of her own.
Hill's devotion to design is evident in her selection of beautiful fabrics and trimmings combined with innovative combinations of cuts to accentuate the best features of each and every woman.
