Hilary grew up in Washington DC. In 2007, she received her BFA in Printmaking from RISD. After college she lived briefly in Brooklyn before moving to Marfa TX where she lived for seven years. While there, she worked at various places including dosa, inc., Ballroom Marfa and the Judd Foundation. She spent a lot of time browsing books at the Marfa Book Company, and co-founded a satirical monthly paper called Real News with Rosa McElheny.
