Hill Sillies ™ are a group of puppets created by artist Tricia Jacobs at Greenbelly Studios. They love to tell stories, sing songs, and teach children about the Bible. The puppets are created in our home studio using recycled, new and re-purposed materials. No feathers, or animal fur are used in creating our puppets. Tricia Jacobs began Greenbelly Studios in 2008 out of the desire to publish Christian animation for children. Tricia is a author, artist, animator, and musician. She works in a variety of mediums in her home studio including; digital media, fiber arts, puppetry, and painting. Tricia does long-distance missionary work to Ukraine and is an advocate for the orphans living there. Currently, she holds a graduate certificate in Music and Worship from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and a BS in Digital Media & Animation from the State University of New York. For the last fourteen years, she has been residing in Western New York State with her husband Ron who assists with studio operations. Tricia and Ron have independently published five children's books for Amazon Kindle through Greenbelly Studios since 2016.
