Artist’s Bio – Hillary Dow

Hi, my name is Hillary Dow. I  was born and raised in the rural mountains of Maine and fortunately I still call the pine tree state my home. Classically trained in illustration, I am a graduate of the Hartford Aft School at the University of Hartford. Inspired by the beauty and splendor of nature, the influences that spin around me, and the zany things done and said by our two children, Eva and Tyler, or my smashingly fabulous husband, Adam, I channel the joy and adventure of our life into unique, creative works of art.

My preferred media include watercolor, pastel, ink, graphite, and wool felting in the form of needle felted wool paintings.

When not painting, pulling bus stop duty, or pulling down hours at work, I am publishing wonderfully unique children’s books as the founder of Binding Tales. My books inspire children (and the adults who love them) to read, write and imagine. Binding Tales offers bound paperback books that spark creativity and learning while preserving fleeting childhood memories. Take a peek at the inside of Binding Tales books with our preview flip book!
