about me

Hillary Frazier specializes in traditional illustration, hand-drawn typography, and bouts of work-induced insomnia. Frazier graduated in May 2013, from Centenary College of Louisiana with a double-Bachelors in Studio Arts and Communications (with an emphasis in film). In December 2019, she acquired her Master of Arts in Art at Northwestern State University in Louisiana.

Influences include artists such as Alphonse Mucha, Fiona Staples, Skottie Young, and Jamie Hewlett. Many of her works start off as an organic sketch and turn into a reflection of her stream of consciousness. In many of her works, she depicts women who often appear empowered but who also display subtle vulnerability, displaying the thin line between the two dynamics within the spectrum of femininity.
