Hilary is a writer and art critic who has had books published on various Irish artists and their work. Until recently she was the curator at the Jack B.

She studied under Sir William Orpen (1878-1931) and excelled as a portrait painter. In 1914, she married Harry Clarke who is world renowned for his work on stained glass.
