Hillary holds memberships in multiple local art associations and is currently President of the Bethlehem Art Association in Delmar, New York.
Hillary’s work was recently given an honorable mention award in the 2018 FENCE Select exhibit at The Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy New York. She credits her art residency at Atelier de la Rose in Montcabrier France (2015) for opening her artistic eye and changing how she seeks power & beauty in her images. A multi-medium artist, Hillary hopes to instill a purpose to her images, whether they be paintings or photographs. Hillary has participated in multiple group and solo exhibitions.

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 entry into 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 this past April.
