Hilary Greenstein once cried while watching an Olive Garden commercial. She is also a fine artist based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She received her BFA in Drawing and Painting from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 2013. She is currently a full-time teaching artist to humans ages three through five at Urban Arts Academy. They say dress for the job you want, so a lifetime of dressing like a preschool teacher has gotten her the privilege of teaching prekindergarten students about artists including Bob the Drag Queen, Judith Scott, and Frida Kahlo.

You may have seen her paintings around Minnesota at Gamut Gallery, Rochester Center for the Arts, Rosalux Gallery, and Hopkins Center for the Arts.   She paints in studio 206A of the California Building in Northeast Minneapolis, and opens her studio to the public for Art-a-Whirl. In her spare time, she works tirelessly to keep her cat, Charlemagne, out of trouble. She is a Scorpio, but please don't let that scare you.
