Eva M. Hunter
I’m a native of Syracuse, NY. After high school, the beautiful mountains and red rocks of Colorado were my home. They made my soul sing, but after a few years I returned home to Syracuse.
An introvert at heart, art has given color to my voice and the freedom to express myself. As an artist I love to use a variety of techniques and styles. It’s not for me to only use one medium or to repeat the same conversation. There’s so much to say! Exploring and testing the ‘rules’, and challenging my skills is what drives my passion. The unexpected bit of whimsy and humor in my art is a reflection of the shy, quiet me sharing a moment of bravery with the world.
The outdoors has always inspired me in a spiritual way. Nature kicks ass! Where ever I am; deserts, mountains, caves, or while hiking along secluded waterways; the heart and imagination sing. Plein air painting helps communicate the textures, movements, light and spirit of the places that I discover.
When the abstract and illustrative bug hits me I try to engage my viewers heart and imagination, bringing to life the overwhelming images stirring in my brain.
