where her mother's love of colorful flowers and her father's broad appreciation
of nature proved to have a profound influence on her artistic concerns and
She attended college in North Wales
where she was awarded the Douglas

States where she pursued her career

Masters of Arts degree in Fine Art in
Hilary has held more than sixty solo exhibitions of her oil paintings
nationally at museums, universities, and commercial art galleries,
including the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio.
She has won over forty awards in national and regional exhibitions. including the Grand Prize and First Place Award in the experimental
category in The Artist's Magazine,
which had over 10,000 entries.
Her paintings have been featured in the major art publications like
American Art Collector, International Artist. The Artist's Magazine,
and Art Crowd Magazine. I was captivated by her colored glass
collection of oil paintings that you see here today.
I stumbled upon Hilary's work while researching another art post. I was drawn in
by a memory from my childhood that these beautiful pastel glass bottles and flowers
evoked. It reminded me of my Aunt Rita's dressing table. Beautiful colored glass
bottles of perfumes and cream and I don't know what else sat on an oval mirrored
tray in the middle of her dressing table in their bedroom. It was a memory of classic
beauty in a gentler time.
I claim nothing here as my own. All information is from the website listed below.
Check it out. Her work is fantastic!
