About this Artist…


L Hilary Slotta

I love COLOR! I love being CREATIVE! I love being JOYFUL, to have FUN & to be CALM & RELAX.  

Most important of all –      

I love spending time with family – I LOVE sharing with my FAMILY!

I’ve dabbled in different types of artistic endeavors my entire life.  I come from a very creative family!  We have professional musicians, actors and artists starting with my mother & father and down through the generations to their great-grandchildren.

They have fully supported my passions over the years, such as:

  • Local Community Theatre
  • Professional Singer (30 yrs)
  • Professional Hair Stylist
  • Professional Artist

When it comes to painting, I was motivated by my eldest son, Ryan, who was an Anime (Japanese style) Artist.  He encouraged me to pick up my brushes again, help build my studio (Heart Crafted by Hilary, Art Studio), and was my sounding board for ideas and much more. Ryan was ready to expand his career when he died suddenly in 2021, at age 38.

To honor him, I am inspired to pursue my art career more fully.

Paintings are now what I create most in my new studio since 2018.  I focus on:

  • Alcohol Ink Art on various surfaces
  • Acrylic painting and pouring on canvas, ceramics, jewelry
  • Watercolor Art
  • Mixed Media Art

I love painting florals, landscapes, desertscapes and abstracts.

Come back to visit often to see what’s new! Enjoy!
