Amy creates realistic paintings in watercolor that reach toward the abstract.
Her work describes interesting compositions found in everyday things, from people to landscapes. She is always looking for ways to manipulate water and pigment for maximum impact.
Jill Hunt creates in a wide range of media, with a preference for oil, watercolor and silk painting. The style and subject matter she uses in her work are also diverse.
She shifts between media and techniques as a means of staying creatively fresh and makes choices based on what she feels will best communicate what she wants to share. Regardless, her work remains linked in its emotive and symbolic imagery, captured in luminous color. Each with meaning beyond the concrete, her paintings represent life experience and the emotions carried with it.
A primary goal of my painting is to bring to the viewer’s awareness the magnificent surroundings we all share and must protect.
My work attempts to document our quiet moments and our beautiful, fragile planet. It also attempts to capture those restful locations and points in time when all is calm and nothing is needed or unessential.
I try to avoid the busy and opulent in favor of the quiet and unassuming.
