Anna Althea Hills (also known as A. A. Hills) was a founding member of the Laguna Beach Art Association in Laguna Beach California, eventually serving as its president for several terms. Her unending energies towards fundraising and the creation of the Laguna Museum of Art were recognized with a commemorative plaque placed at the site upon her death in 1930. Anna Hills was also an active member of the California Art Club, held a membership at the Washington Watercolor Club and exhibited frequently.
While Anna Althea Hills's early work involved figure paintings and darker interiors, the Orange County scenery truly inspired her. The landscapes and scenery she depicted in her later paintings involved Impressionistic use of light and brush techniques. Throughout her career she would employ watercolor and oil for her painting.
Anna Althea Hills passed away at the age of forty-eight on June 13, 1930 in Laguna Beach, California.
