Hillary Milens is a working artist born and raised in Burlington, Vermont. Milens has a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. After concentrating mainly in sculpture while at UMass, she began experimenting with drawing and painting. Milens returned to Amherst, MA in the fall of 2005 to continue pursuing her art career as well as a career in non-profit/arts management. Milens is currently the General Manager of Amherst Cinema and Pleasant Street Theater.
Milens’ work is an exploration of surface, texture, and color. Her paintings are made by building up and breaking down the surface of the wood by applying layers of paint, scrapping into the paint and marking the surface with various tools and techniques. An interest in repetition, organic form and the meditative process are all present in the paintings.
