Explorations: Paintings and Drawings by Hillary Frye


About the Artist

Hillary with artHillary Frye is an artist that lives in Fairview, NC. She works in her studio at the home she shares with her husband, glass artist Shane Smith & their two children. Hillary is a mixed media artist that builds her compositions using layers and layers of paint on canvas. She explores with a variety of materials, including collage, aerosol, acrylic paint, ink, stencils, pastels, watercolor & color pencils to create evocative, expressive pieces of art. Using circles and lines, Hillary makes colorful scenes that have an organic, raw nature. These circular and linear based designs create a fantasy like atmosphere. The bold, vibrant work is an artistic exploration of expressiveness.

Artist Statement

A common theme in my work is circles. Last year, I was pregnant with my second daughter & animals started appearing in my art. You can see this happen in this body of work on display at the Asheville Community Theatre.
