Hilary Mussel

Hilary Mussel is a multidisciplinary artist based out of Edmonton, Alberta. She grew up on an acreage in rural Alberta and spent most of her youth outdoors and in her imagination. Her work is influenced by folklore and storytelling traditions, and explores the diversity of nature using textile and fibre-based sculptures, drawings and paintings. She is interested in the patterns and textures found in real organisms, but it is also equally about exploring the materials she uses to create the work. While she deals with representing the beauty, ugliness and the stories found in nature, she also cannot avoid the humour, which tends to sneak into her work, and gives her
great joy.
