After moving to the US from England as a teenager, Jane Hunt received her BFA in illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art. After working as an illustrator for several years, she eventually returned to her true love: landscape oil painting.
Hunt is a PAPNM Master Signature Member, Signature Member of OPA, AIS, LPAPA, AWA, WAOW, PAAC, and an artist member of the Salmagundi Club and the California Art Club.
A sought-after instructor, Hunt’s Museum exhibitions include: The Meam Museum in Barcelona, Albuquerque Museum, Irvine Museum, Tucson Desert Art Museum, Old West Museum, California Women’s Museum, Loveland Museum, Pasadena Museum of Art, Taos Art Museum at Fechin House, The Steamboat Art Museum, and The Haggin Museum.
The oil painter is represented by notable galleries in the US as well as her native England. She now resides in Colorado, where she’s awed and inspired by the beauty surrounding her.
“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. In an impressionistic, tonal style 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.”
