I am a third generation family-taught Texas artist. My mother Verna Mae and grandmother Toots, were both outstanding artists and passed their skills down to me. I became a full-time artist in 1987, creating digital Scottish and Irish heraldic art using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. The approximately two-thousand digital artworks are branded under the name "Macrory Mor" they are used for Print On Demand products on several platforms including Amazon Merch, Teepublic, Redbubble and others.
In 1997, I began creating landscape paintings with acrylics and oils on canvas. My primary subject is the Great Southwest of the United States. I started these mediums with instruction from William Hook and Albert Handell, from them I learned about the dedication required to be a succesful artist. My paintings are available from my website hiltonmclaurin.com and from Broadway Contemporary Fine Art Gallery in Lubbock, Texas.
In 2019, I began creating digital art that also has a Southwest landscape slant like my paintings. The goal is to mint the artwork into NFT crypto art to make it available to a wider audience.
