Jeanine Hill was born in Alcalde, New Mexico on a Pueblo Reservation where she and her family were surrounded by vast orchards and high canyon walls. Her first exposure to the arts was early on when her father began taking photographs of the traditional Pueblo ceremonies by day and working with wood by night. She was taught the value of storytelling by her mother, who used words to shape the world. Jeanine's own making and storytelling practices were forged out of hours of being lost in the woods of Vermont, and sharing stories with her siblings. She began telling stories with her hands early on and has continued to pursue this practice. Over the last few years she has begun to foster her practice of teaching and passion for making.
