Susan Gordon Hillier graduated from the University of Massachusetts with a B.F.A. degree in design. Working primarily in pastels, she captures the scenery of the Hill towns of Ashfield and beyond. Her quiet, reflective nature is expressed in the soft light of the pastel medium as she translates her vision of the landscape. A plein air painter, she works on site capturing the light and mood of the day with subtle shading and colors. “It’s that quiet realm of solitude that I feel in harmony with my surroundings.”

Susan Gordon Hillier’s work can be found in numerous public and private collections throughout the United States.
