I am always grateful for the beautiful things that come my way. The love of my family and friends, the joy of my children and discovering new places.
My artistic endeavours constantly fill my mind and while I juggle my home and work life - I fill every other available hour with creating beautiful things.
Working gesturally with texture and colour are what I love best, and Ostentatious Hats was created out of a need to be flamboyant with wearable art, and is a natural extension of my love of fashion.
I alternate between Art and Millinery as both can not co-exist! One requires clean hands and the other makes me impossibly dirty! I hope you enjoy the results as much as I do.
My Millinery label "Ostentatious Hats by Rebecca Hillis" aims to create Millinery that is one of a kind for every customer, both bespoke and ready to wear.
Visit my store here or either of my facebook pages Ostentatious Hats by Rebecca Hillis or Rebecca Hillis Artist to stay up to date with my latest creations.
If I have learnt anything it is to pick your passion and run with it. I care not for rules or the way things were- but to grasp ideas with both hands and run wild with them.
As for you... what is it that you love? I hope you find something here that inspires you too....
