  • Artist Biography
    • Wildlife artist Matthew Hillier was born in England. Married to fellow artist Julia Rogers, he now lives in the United States on the Eastern shore of Maryland. Hillier’s father was a museum designer who taught his son the rudiments of painting with watercolors, a medium Hillier used during his years as an illustrator. Traveling widely in search of subjects to study and paint, Hillier finds himself drawn to the water birds. Hillier studied at Dyfed College of Art in Carmanthen, West Wales. He has exhibited regularly at the Pastel Society, the Society of Wildlife Artists, and The Royal Institute, as well as the Paris Salon, the Royal Society of Marine Artists and the Blaritz Salon. He has participated in Christie’s Wildlife Art Auction. Hillier has had several one-man exhibitions throughout Great Britain and has illustrated numerous books. In 1995, he won the World Wildlife Fund Fine Art Award. In 1998 he received The People’s Choice Award from the Florida Wildlife Art Expo, and in both 1997 and 1998 he received the Society of Animal Artists’ Award of Excellence. In 2002 Matthew won an award of excellence from the Hiram Blauvelt Museum. In 2010 and again in 2011 Hillier won the Best of Show at the annual Best of the Chesapeake show at McBride Gallery. Museum shows include Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Easton Academy of Art Museum, and the Ward Brothers Museum.
