Born and raised in the U.S, Hillary Werth has been an artist and athlete all their life. They were an all American track and field athlete who received a full scholarship as a student athlete to the University of California Los Angeles and received a degree in history/art history in 2009. After graduating, they were accepted into the University of Nebraska’s art education program where they studied for one year until they hung their paintbrush up to be an Olympic hopeful.
Hillary tried out and was named as a member of the U.S. National Bobsled Team. Due to injury they retired, picked their art career back up, and ran their own successful business as a working artist. From making guest speaking appearances at K-12 schools and universities, to national publications, to international recognition, Hillary has had great success as an artist and athlete.
In 2018, Hillary wanted to complete their teaching certification where they enrolled at the University of Missouri St. Louis. For the last 5 years Hillary has put all their creative energies into being an art educator. In 2021, they moved to Kingston to marry their wife. As of October 2022, Hillary received their permanent residency here in Canada and is eager to jump into the Kingston art and education world.
Specializing in drawing, abstract painting, mixed media, and spray paint, the way in which Hillary creates is similar to the way they teach. Focusing on balance, layers, and composition. “The space we create in is just as important as what we create. Producing a therapeutic environment for people to feel calm and themselves is what I aim for.”
