Matthew Hillier - Artist and Teacher by Amy Blades Steward

For his students at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, accomplished wildlife and marine artist Matthew Hillier is the great motivator. After creating an extraordinary career as a painter both in Europe and America, Hillier added teaching to his repertoire. His life journey has been an interesting one and has con-

tributed significantly to the life experiences he brings to the classroom to share with his students. Hillier comments, “I bring my experience to the table. Some people are intimidated by my work, but when I teach, I try not to turn my students into copies of me. I let them work through their problems
