    Biography

     

    Following her move from England to the US as a teenager, Jane Hunt received her B.F.A. in illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art.

    After working as an illustrator for several years Hunt eventually returned to her true love: landscape oil painting.  A sought after instructor, Hunt will again be a faculty member of the Plein Air Convention and a demo artist/speaker at the Oil painters of America National Exhibition.  

     

    “Even though I paint a lot of studies on location, my landscapes are actually less about describing a specific place than they are about the feelings evoked.  With an impressionistic, tonal approach, I hope to convey the emotional connection that I had with each scene.  Moving cross-Atlantic three times in my early years, I spent much of my life with an underlying sense of homesickness.  This yearning propelled me to create a sense of ‘home’ within my landscapes.  My greatest hope is that my work gives its viewers this same sense of comfort and connectedness; a gentle place to rest.”

     

    Hunt's paintings have been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur, Southwest Art, Art of the West, Mountain Living, Luxe, and Plein Air Magazine.

     

    Her award winning paintings have been exhibited at notable galleries and museums internationally.

    Now based in Colorado, she frequently paints plein air, and continues to be awed by the beauty surrounding her.


    Hunt's work is represented by galleries in the US, as well as her native England.
