ABOUT

Hillary Wilson Headshot.png
Life

Raised by an endlessly supportive, adventure loving family, Hillary has a deep appreciation for effective storytelling and exploring the natural world. She received a master's degree in Medical Illustration from the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and spends her professional time striking a balance between medical and general illustration.

 

She is particularly invested in creating work that celebrates underrepresented groups and the beauty of human variation. She also works toward making medical and scientific information more accessible to general audiences. When she is not creating art, she spends as much time as possible cooking, staying active, and tending to her plant collection.
