About the artist
Hilary Done was born in Vancouver, BC. Her earliest memories are of playing on the beach in West Vancouver. She believes that this imprinted upon her an undying love for the ocean and all things coastal.
Her family relocated to Hollywood, CA in the late 1950s, where her father worked as an Art Director in the golden age of television. Growing up surrounded by artists and their work, she visited the studios with her father and was always proud to see him in his element. She will never forget the sight of his set designs coming to life.
Her own creative journey started early, experimenting with different media, attending classes both in Pasadena, CA and later in Oxford, UK. She got married and had two children in England before returning to California in 1984, where she had three more children. The demands of raising a family caused her to put her artistic ambitions on hold. Now that the nest is empty, she has been able to rediscover the joy of painting.

A singular creation, the only one of its kind.

The production run has ceased; however, the total number of artworks created remains unspecified.
A Proof of Provenance is an official document that establishes the genuine nature of an artwork. Issued by a credible authority, this may be signed directly by the creator, the gallery representing the creator, or the specialist who collaborated with the artist. In cases of traded artworks, authenticated bodies or designated foundations may issue such certifications.
These documents are comprehensive, usually detailing the artist’s name, specifics of the artwork (including title, creation date, materials used, size), and ideally, an image of the art piece itself.
