Hillary Dohoney is an artist from Fort Worth, Texas. She has a BA in Studio Art and in Art History at Trinity University. She received Trinity University’s Excellence in Art Award upon graduation. She is conversant in French and studied abroad in Paris where she was a docent at the Musée d’Orsay and an official copyist of the Louvre. Her work uses her knowledge of art history with a minimal contemporary twist. Mainly working with oil paint, porcelain, and screen-printing, she takes the classical approach of trompe l’œil to render unconventional entities. Her work has been exhibited in Paris, San Antonio, Arkansas, and Fort Worth.
What do you wish other people would do?
I wish that people would support the arts more readily. A strong community is one that embraces the diverse nature of creative disciplines. Even if one is just visiting a gallery for date night or investing in a small work of art by a local artist you are investing in the community as a whole.
