Hillary Mullan

Hillary Mullan says: “I have the privilege of being exposed to the beauty of the human body regularly. I believe that art and creativity can play a unique role in the healing process, and use art as a means of processing the various and challenging experiences I have had in medical school. The hearts were cut out of colored cardstock with an X-Acto knife, assembled with foam tape, and mounted on larger sheets of cardstock. I chose the title ‘Spectrum’ because it is reflective of the many colors in the piece and because it also brings to mind the many forms of love we encounter throughout our lives.”

Hillary Mullan is a Medical Student at the University of Massachusetts in Worcester.
