Hilary's Profile

About

Hello Beautiful Person! My name is Hilary.

I started making my living from my artwork in 1989. Somewhere along the way, I adopted the name Bunny with a Toolbelt, which encapsulated the way I love to learn and work in many different art media.

In addition to Etsy, I sell this work at The Museum of Contemporary Craft, Oregon College of Art and Craft, and the Center for Art in Wood. The work I show on my Etsy site has been featured in the Style section of the Sunday New York Times, American Craft Magazine, Sweet Paul Magazine, Brides Magazine, Green Wedding Shoes, 100 Layer Cake, Eco-Beautiful Weddings, Wedding Bee, Broke Ass Bride, and…

Hello Beautiful Person! My name is Hilary.

I'm currently a finalist for the Martha Stewart American Made Awards!

I keep a blog of this business which shows images from my workbench, things that inspire me, and what's new. You can read it at www.bunnywithatoolbelt.blogspot.com

When I'm not working on this business, I spend most of my free time making other artwork. I have created large scale installations for the Fuller Craft Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Craft, the Indianapolis Art Center and others. My work is represented by Velvet da Vinci Gallery in San Francisco. You can see plenty of images of this work on my other website hilarypfeifer.com

The spare time that's left is spent volunteering for various arts organizations in my hometown, or hanging out with my sweetheart and our most awesome dog Weegee.
