Hildi graduated from the University of Manitoba in 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She completed a thesis in Printmaking specializing in intaglio. She also holds a BA and a BTh. Hildi has a passion for line drawings and images rendered in black and white. One of her favourite tools is her extra fine tipped Rapidoliner pen. Hildi’s works, regardless of the medium, demonstrate a narrative quality that represents her attention to connections between entities. During her residency at Artbeat Studio, Hildi delved into monoprints and clay sculpture. Hildi lives in Winnipeg with her three cats, which provide a source of inspiration for both her art and her life. Hildi continues to develop her portfolio and volunteers in the ceramics studio at Artbeat.
