Due to the proximity to Long Island Sound, when the wind is blowing onshore, one can detect the salty smell of the shoreline air and sometimes hear the distant sound of the surf in the background. Hilary’s studio has a relaxed and comfortable feel, where one can reflect and find inspiration for the next painting or recharge for the day ahead. It is spacious, with ample wall space showcasing about 40 pieces of framed watercolor paintings. Hilary’s hope is that people who come to her studio will feel the same sense of peace and tranquility that she experiences here and be inspired by the art that they will see.
Hilary is a predominantly self-taught artist. She has painted watercolors for the past twenty years, painting commissions for private collections and donating paintings to auctions for charity. In 2008, the Madison Chamber of Commerce recognized Hilary’s artwork and chose her to paint two postcard scenes depicting the town of Madison in watercolors. She is also one of the local artists the Madison Lion’s Club selected to raise funds for the organization, by selling prints of her original artwork. She currently has art for sale in the gift shop at the Mercy Center in Madison.
Hilary is a native of Greenwich, Connecticut. As a child she developed a deep appreciation for the beauty of the natural world. She traveled extensively throughout her youth, camping in America’s breathtaking national parks. During college, she lived in Europe, gaining an appreciation for the ageless splendor of Europe. Hilary’s travels have inspired her to paint a diverse array of subjects. In 2004 she moved to Madison, CT, with her husband, and three children.
