About the Artist

Hilary Pfeifer’s artwork explores the natural world through sculpture, collage and installation, often using reclaimed wood, laser cut metal and subtly camouflaged found objects. Her recent collage work is made by hand-cutting hundreds of elements to create a dense composition. A 5th generation Oregonian, Hilary graduated from Oregon College of Art and Craft in 1999. Her work has been featured numerous times in American Craft Magazine, and is in the collections of the State of Oregon, The Center for Art in Wood, Oregon Health Sciences University, and the White House. In addition to her studio practice, Hilary has also created many permanent public art works in the region for the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, the Randall Children’s Hospital, and The Ronald McDonald House, among others. In her spare time, Hilary runs a business called Bunny with a Toolbelt, making animals and their environments out of reclaimed wood scraps. Her small street-viewed gallery the Window of Wonders features this work and is located in the heart of the Alberta Arts District.
