JANE HUNT

Master Signature Member: PAPNM, WAOW
Signature Member: OPA, AIS, AWA, PAAC & LPAPA
Artist Member: Salmagundi Club and the California Art Club.

Following her move from England to the US as a teenager, Jane Hunt received her B.F.A. in illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art. After working as an illustrator for several years, Hunt eventually returned to her true love: landscape oil painting.  The artist's works have won over 200 awards and hold the distinction of receiving the most annual Oil Painters of America awards (5 in 2018) as well as the record number of annual Plein Air Salon wins (8 in 2020).

Hunt's paintings have been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur, Southwest Art, Art of the West, Mountain Living, Luxe, Plein Air Magazine, Western Art & Architecture, and many more. She's represented by galleries across the US, as well as her native England. Now based in Colorado, she frequently paints plein air, and continues to be awed by the beauty surrounding her.
