Born in Philadelphia, Hillary grew up in Marblehead, Massachusetts, a small picturesque coastal town north of Boston. It was there she first discovered both her love for art and for the beauty in nature.
Enrolled in art classes as a child, she found her passion for the creative process.
Hillary has always been interested by the natural world and her physical surroundings and finds inspiration from varied sources: from the amazing color and structure of flowers, to images of outer space with exploding stars and distant galaxies, and how we as humans live and build our lives here in the midst of it all.
Hillary lives with her husband, Bill Pace, in New York City.
