About - Hil Anderson

Hil Anderson

I am a storyteller. I believe that all roads to knowledge are paved with fabulous tales. Stories make us who we are. They bind our communities and allow us to understand our world. I enjoy telling stories that challenge common, narrative expectations - stories that strain at the boundaries of language as poetry does; stories that are non-verbal like dance, and stories, like photographs, that rely neither on words or an unfolding across time.

I was born in Georgia and educated in New England. My life could be considered a pendulum swinging between art and academia. However, the natural laws implied by this metaphor have been upended since I have been staying home with our three children, for whom the laws of nature are more aspirational. Art is what happens now in those gravity-free, grown-up moments.
