I am passionate about creating work that celebrates the spirit of the Pacific Northwest.

Founded in 1993, Sabina Hill Design has evolved into an interdisciplinary design studio located in Pender Harbour on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia.

I designed my own home with a live-in gallery and studio for my waterfront property in 2018. This unique live-work space includes a well-appointed private guest suite for those who wish to live with my art in a truly immersive experience, observe my creative process, and collaborate on commissioned pieces.

Born in Vancouver, BC, and descended from four generations of Pacific Coast Canadians living between the forest and the sea, I am inspired by my sense of place and telling a visual story through my designs.

I spent part of my early childhood in Tahsis, BC, a remote area on the rugged West Coast of Vancouver Island that is rich in First Nations culture. I was first introduced to First Nations art through my parents’ collection of intricately woven Nuchatlaht baskets. Captivated by their vibrant colours and geometric motifs, these baskets are now displayed in my home and are a reminder of the power of artistic inspiration.

As a young adult, I became interested in three-dimensional and sculptural works, and completed my foundation year at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.

Growing up, I spent time at my family’s historic Yellow Point Lodge on Vancouver Island, exploring acres of pristine oceanfront. My grandfather, Gerry Hill, built the lodge in the 1930s. Current owners Richard and Sandi Hill asked me to design their Scout Point house overlooking Stuart Channel, my first commission, and reaffirmed my belief that a site’s unique landscape is a rich source of inspiration.

I have degrees in environmental studies from the University of Manitoba and in architecture from the University of British Columbia. For more than 25 years, my multi-disciplinary design studio projects have ranged from custom residential, interiors and renovations to furniture, art and landscape design.

I am deeply inspired by the natural world and the influence of First Nations people who have been expressing the spirit of the land through art for thousands of years.
My early place-based genius loci inspired influences include architects Arthur Erickson and Ron Thom, pioneers of the West Coast modern movement that embraced geographical and cultural context, and artists Emily Carr and Jack Shadbolt, whose paintings have included First Nations imagery and forms.

Seeking to create works with a distinctly Pacific Northwest Coast design aesthetic, I began collaborating professionally with First Nations artists in 1998. My creations, presented through unique material combinations and leading-edge technologies, bring the ceremonial into daily life and celebrate the convergence of two distinct design cultures.

In my solo and collaborative work, I mix contemporary abstraction with traditional mythology to create unique designs that the late Dr. George MacDonald (former president of the Bill Reid Foundation: hailed as “demonstrating the next phase in the development of Northwest Coast art and design.”

I have a background in relief printmaking and architecture, and keen understanding of positive and negative space which is evident in my three-dimensional work.

My work is recognized nationally and internationally. It is in the permanent collection of the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada, and it has been commissioned by the Government of Canada for diplomatic premises abroad including Canada House High Commission in London, England, the Canadian Joint Delegation to NATO in Brussels, Belgium, the Canadian consulate in Guangzhou, China, and the Official Residences in Berlin, Germany, and Barbados.
I am passionate about creating work that celebrates the spirit of the Pacific Northwest.
