Hilary Leslie Member Since June 2020 Artist Statement HLeslie Design is an illustration brand by Hilary Leslie. Growing up on the Oregon coast in an artistic community, Hilary learned to observe the natural beauty around her and incorporate it into her drawings.
Hilary discovered her ability to draw intricate designs after observing a henna artist in high school. When she had no one to practice on, she turned to pen and paper to express her interpretation of this ancient art form. Her style further evolved towards abstract and geometric design after being surrounded by Moorish architecture and Damascene art in Spain.
Hilary's precise designs are all drawn by hand without a ruler or compass. She loves to draw everyday objects and animals with clean line work to make her illustrations sharp and bold.
