Hilary Daltry is a painter printmaker who studied at the Slade School of Fine Art (B.A. Painting) and at Chelsea School of Art (M.A. Printmaking). She was awarded The Prix de Rome Scholarship in Printmaking in 1985-6 and a Greek government scholarship to Athens in 1988.
Always working from life she draws directly onto woodblocks. The subject matter of her prints includes portraits, allegorical figures and fruits and flowers. Her prints are often included in The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and she is a council member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers. Her work can be seen at the Bankside Gallery.
V&A Inspired by
Inspired By is the V&A’s annual art, craft and design competition for people on part-time courses. Adult learners are invited to create original works inspired by the museum’s collections. Hilary always encourages her Friday printmaking class to enter and her students have been successful for the last 12 years in a row.
This year Mary Shovelle will have her watercolour design for a scarf, The Ancient Ritual of Tea Making on display until the 3rd July in rooms 17a and 18a.
