Hilary Owers trained in printmaking and photomedia at Central Saint Martin's College of Art and Design in London. During and since the completion of her MA Fine Art at the University of East London in 2001, she has been based at Cuckoo Farm Studios, Colchester, Essex. Since graduating her work has been exhibited regularly in London and the Eastern region. Drawing is central to her current art practice.
A return to the fundamentals of mark-making has enabled different possibilities to emerge within Owers' work. Compositions evolve organically as a response to different media, as line becomes form. The sometime evocation of a loose landscape feeling developed in the work is not always intentional.
