“She made beauty all round her. When she trod on mud, the mud was beautiful; when she ran in the rain, the rain was silver. When she picked up a toad—she had the strangest and, I thought, unchanciest love for all manner of brutes—the toad became beautiful.
— C.S Lewis "Til We Have Faces"

ABOUT HILLARY

Most days you can find me with my teensy studio assistant on hip, working away in the studio.  A rambling journey took me to my career as an artist- it's an art major turned English major turned English teacher turned admin assistant turned graphic designer turned artist kinda journey. Hear more about my story on a recent podcast with Elise Joy.  I quit my 9-5 in 2011 to start a career that allowed me to make a living working alongside my family, and I'm amazed most days that I get to live this life.  I am a podcast junkie, lover of long dinners with good friends and Sunday afternoons with a good book. A really tall, handsome guy lives with me as well. I call him "hubs" and our son Cedar calls him "dad." David is also an artist.  Check out his work here: www.davidbutler.bigcartel.com. We live and work in Memphis, TN and life is very good. 

I'm honored to have work on ABC’s hit show, Nashville, and have had the opportunity to show at Agora Gallery in New York. Several hit blogs have featured some HB work. Among these are Better Homes and Gardens, Domino, & Design Love Fest. 

Thanks for being here and being a part of my journey- I couldn’t do what I do without amazing supporters along the way!
