In 2017 her triptych painting "Sunrise in Ventura" was selected by the City of Ventura Mayor Erik Nasarenko for his State of the City address invitation and collateral material.

In 2016 she became a Public Art Commissioner for the City of Ventura.

Artist Hilda Kilpatrick-Freyre was a board member for six years at the Buenaventura Art Association.

In 2009 Kilpatrick-Freyre’s painting was on the cover of the July/August 2009 issue of SkyWest Magazine (United Express).

Hilda is a recipient of the 2007-2008 Artist Fellowship Grant from the City of Ventura and she has shown her paintings at the City of Ventura Mayor’s office.

Hilda Kilpatrick-Freyre’s paintings are in many private collections around the world. Her style, enhanced by her experiences and extensive travel throughout Europe and South America, reflects what she feels inside her heart… that life should be lived as an adventure!
