Born and raised in the wild Western Colorado, Hilary Stein is an artist whose work is formed by a deep connection to the land. She holds a BFA in Fine Arts and French from St. Catherine University in St. Paul, MN and an MFA from the Marchutz School in Aix-en-Provence, France where she had spent her formative years as a study abroad student, fellow, and graduate teaching assistant.

She currently spends her time teaching K-8 Art in Hotchkiss Colorado and continues to devote herself to her painting practice, teaching workshops in her community, and farming at a local organic flower farm. It is foundational to her work to draw inspiration from the raw and austere landscape of the high desert in which she lives and the surprising abundance which springs from it. Her painting is an exploration of one’s interrelation with the land and of the longing to belong more harmoniously with it.
