Hilary Sheehan is a life long California resident with a Ph D in Economics from UC Berkeley. The Sausalito artist creates playful abstract paintings, mixed media works and prints as well as short animations. She builds dense surfaces in her compositions using multiple layers of drawing and paint, often incorporating gestural figure drawing. While continually experimenting with new methods and materials she has developed an idiosyncratic style with strong compositions and distinctive calligraphic lines.
