Hillary has traveled extensively over her life and has documented her travels and experiences in powerful and intriguing images. Her photography stretches the limits of possibility and imagination. Her paintings capture time and dimension, and offers observers suggestions of alternative and parallel universes. Trained in both realism and abstract Hillary often merges the two styles to create her own unique body of work. Hillary recently completed an art residency at Dacia Gallery in Manhattan NYC in April.
