Fine art painter in oils, acrylics and watercolours
Having been a longtime collector of art, Hilary started painting after retirement and has recently added oil painting to her existing repertoire of acrylics and watercolours. She is an enthusiast of simultaneous contrast to make the colours in artwork sing and is intrigued by the concept of optical mixing. Her current focus is on stripping down what she sees in reference photos or in the natural world to the essence of the narrative she wants to convey. Her message to viewers, especially children, is that we are all creative beings with the ability to express ourselves; anyone with the desire and commitment to learn can develop their creative talent to share with the world. Each of us is unique and special. Remove your light from under the bushel and SHINE!
