Slice of Life

Spotting that last slice sitting on the pie plate can be a bittersweet moment, but as you savor those final bites of flaky crust and tangy filling you'll remember why making a pie from scratch is totally worth it. Boston-based artist and illustrator Kendyll Hillegas captures the mouth-watering goodness of our favorite guilty pleasures in her series of food portraits that are a true feast for the eyes. The rich pie filling is worked in layers of red, magenta, and pink using gouache, watercolor, and colored pencil. The glass pie plate shines with glimmers of pale periwinkle and is smattered with yellow and pink remnants of the lattice crust and filling. An indulgent homage to a humble slice of pie, her irresistible art can sweeten up any room and is perfect for bakers, kids, and dessert devotees of all ages. Printed in Oregon.

Food and everyday objects have always held a special fascination for me. There is something magical about taking a moment to notice the beauty in the objects that we use and love daily, and the food that we share with others.

Like many of creative people, I have had my hands in a lot of pies over the years. After graduating with a BFA in painting I knew that I wanted to make art, but I was not sure what kind or how. In the meantime, I worked as a tutor, a barista, a community organizer and a designer. It was not until 2012 when I began to make what I considered personal illustrations of food and objects, that I had a sense of clarity about the kind of work I wanted to make. I began sharing these paintings on Tumblr, and shortly thereafter opened an Etsy shop. My work is now on retail packaging, in print and web publications, and in corporate art collections and homes around the world.

Now that I am illustrating full-time, I feel more motivated than ever to keep my eyes open and notice the moments of ordinary, ephemeral beauty that surround me. While my work is intensely personal, it is my hope that it is also approachable since we all have favorite foods and stories that go along with them.

My sunny little studio is located in Quincy, MA - just five minutes south of Boston. When I am not making art, I am probably reading, taking cat pictures or pursuing my eternal quest for the perfect pie.
