Welcome. I've been practicing art for over 15 years (since elementary school). In junior high, art teachers even allowed me to copy their original work. For high school I had the privilege to attend LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and the Performing Arts.

After being exposed to all types of media from sculpture, pen & ink, watercolor, printmaking, etc., oil became the medium I most enjoy and work with today.

Contrary to many other artists, most of the work I create does not have a theme. Many of the works you will see here is independent of each other. The subject matter varies from still life, abstract, reference, and suggestions from friends. Colors used are purely instinctual. Some paintings use only two colors. Some paintings are mute and some are bright. The mood I'm in at that moment is reflected in some, if not all, of the colors I use.

Majority of the artwork here were started without sketching. I only use a sketch in two scenarios. One is for commissioned work so the patron can approve of the composition. Second is to work through a part of a painting I'm not comfortable with.

To view the progress of my work you can visit my blog at: http://hunterart.blogspot.com (note I don't update the entries very frequently but I am working on the works!)

Your feedback is welcome and encouraged. I can be reached either through the guestbook or email. Add Comment


Biography

Welcome. I'm a native New Yorker, born, raised in Washington Heights Manhattan, NY. Currently I live in Inwood (WAY upper Manhattan). For as long as I can remember I__™ve been practicing art in some way, shape, or form. My mom tells me how during a parent teacher conference in the first grade, my teacher said that I wasn__™t paying attention in class because I was doodling so much. Luckily I have been able to expand upon that innate desire to create from elementary school through this very day.

As for my education, I graduated from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School for Music and Arts and the Performing Arts with a degree in fine art. Afterwards, I attended New York University Stern School of Business. My Bachelors degree is in Marketing and Management & Organizational Behavior. My Masters is from Baruch College's Zicklin School of Business.
