Artist’s Bio – Hillary Dow

Hillary Dow was born and raised in the rural mountains of Maine and is fortunate to still call the pine tree state her home. Classically trained in illustration, Hillary is 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 her, and the zany things done and said by her two children, Eva and Tyler, or her smashingly fabulous husband, Adam, she channels the joy and adventure of their life into unique, creative works of art. 

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

When not painting or pulling bus stop duty, Hillary is publishing wonderfully unique children’s books as the founder of Binding Tales. Her books inspire children (and the adults who love them) to read, write and imagine. Bound paperback books that spark creativity and learning while preserving fleeting childhood memories.
