About the Artist

Hilary Ann Love Glass is a printmaker, tattoo artist, and illustrator. She has been drawing her whole life and uses this practice to feel grounded and purposeful in the world. She draws flora and fauna from local woods as well as imaginary creatures from other worlds entirely. She uses pen and ink, graphite, colored pencils, watercolor, and gouache as her primary illustration tools. Most of her printmaking experience is in intaglio etching but she intends to incorporate more letterpress, woodcut and silkscreen methods into her work as she continues to learn and create. 

Much of Hilary’s work explores the nature and relationships of creatures both real and imagined, all rendered with lots of detail and narrative in their postures and expressions.  Studying the world around her has often revealed what kinds of other worlds exist in her own imagination. For Hilary, it is nourishing to work on both the inventive drawings as well as more literal, realistic types of illustrations. It is a balancing act. The realistic work has an emphasis on technical detail which is a really meditative process, while the imaginative work opens up many layers of possibility for an emotional attunement. Each practice deepens the other.
