Welcome to Hilary Clark Studios!
I’m an Artist, creating feelings out of fiber. Through the art I create, most specifically my Feelings series, I discovered I could observe my feelings as I turned them into art. Through the observation, I learned each feeling has a lesson to share, each time we feel it.
Many times, our feelings hold us back from being who we’re supposed to be. When we can separate ourselves from our feelings long enough to investigate them, the feelings always reveal opportunities for growth. And when we learn the lessons our feelings are trying to teach us, we always discover Joy and Ease.
I’m a Writer. I share my whimsical, humorous, and occasionally deep thoughts as both essays and novels, publishing once a month here on my website. I’ve written several children’s books (which I’ve been hesitant to try to publish, but that’s changing) and a novel, Love Makes Room for Screwups, which I did publish. My intention is to see my books on the shelves of bookstores and libraries. From time to time, I share excerpts from my novels as I write them.
To read my essays or novel excerpts, head on over to the Essays page where you’ll find my most recent musings as well as an archive of older essays, from full reveals of my new art as I complete a piece to thoughts on joy, ease, gratitude, and other topics.
I’m a Poet. I’ve published a book of my poetry, It All Started With a Haiku. I typically write a poem to go with each of my artworks, then attach a copy of the poem to the back of the piece. All of my poetry can be found via the Poetry link in the menu at the top of the page.
Finally, I’m a Joy & Ease Believer. I believe living a life of joy and ease is our deepest purpose, to get to that place where happiness is natural and everything flows. Anything we want can finally be realized when we release the “hustle” to embrace, integrate, incorporate, and LIVE from a place of joy and ease. My creative practice is just one of the many ways I integrate joy and ease into my life and work. To help share this belief, I’ll be holding Joy & Ease Retreats, small, local, women-filled events that offer the opportunity to step away from the busyness of life and work to relax, unwind, and de-stress. Naps are part of the agenda! If you’re interested in learning more, get in touch via my Contact page.
