This could be Stella HILL of Olton, Birmingham who, according to J&G, exhibited from 1898 until 1905, with nine works at Birmingham Art Gallery and one at the Walker in Liverpool. A beautifully executed painting of a Breton maid - a fisher or farm girl, signed and dated 1905 - might be by this artist, although Brian Stewart of Falmouth Art Gallery has suggested that it may have been painted by a student from Bushey Art School in Herts. Investigations are underway.
