Nationally-recognized award-winning artist Jennifer Hunter is known for her sensitive storytelling of American history and for the quality of light and rich luminous color in her work. “I wish I could travel back in time to experience life as it was. Maybe it’s my love of horses drawing me back in to the days when horses were part of living,” Jennifer shares.
Jennifer is a signature member with Women Artists of the West, American Plains Artists, and the Western Colorado Watercolor Society. She is a graduate of the American Academy of Art and has studied classical painting under master artists.
She was chosen for an artist residency at Rocky Mountain National Park and has a painting of the Park’s historic 1915 dedication in their permanent collection. Her works have been exhibited in many national shows including Arts for the Parks, Transparent Watercolor Society of America, Oil Painters of America, Women Artists of the West, the Western Colorado Watercolor Society, Art of the Plains, Academic Artists’ Association, Watercolor Art Society Houston, Adirondacks Exhibition of American Watercolors, the Bosque Art Classic, the Museum of Western Art in Kerrville, Texas, and the Richard Schmid Fine Art Auction.
Her paintings were featured in editorials in Art of the West, Western Horseman, American Watercolor, Realism Today and Barrington Courier Review (Chicago Tribune). She was recently the subject of a feature story in Country Magazine.
