Hilton MacDonald Hassell was born in Lachine, Quebec in 1910. He began painting at the age of 17 and studied at the Ontario College of Art under J. W. Beatty, J.E.H. Macdonald, and F.H. Johnston. He then travelled to England where he studied under Hayward Veal at the Heatherleys School. He was employed as a graphic artist by Brigdens Limited and also worked as an art editor for MacLean’s Magazine. In 1955, he turned to full time painting.

Hassell painted a variety of subjects including figures, portraits and landscapes. He exhibited 16 of his paintings at the Memorial University Art Gallery in St. John’s, Newfoundland, by invitation, in the spring of 1965. He held solo shows at the Eaton’s Fine Art Galleries, Toronto and Winnipeg in 1965. Hassell was a member of the Ontario Society of Artists and exhibited with the Royal Canadian Academy.
