Lizzie Hunter is an artist and art-educator based in South Florida. She has proudly served as a Magnet Fine Art Instructor at South Miami Senior High Magnet School for the Arts since 2007, and in 2020 she was appointed as an FIU Dual Enrollment Courtesy Lecturer in Art.
Her work is included in several Florida International University art collections, including the Reagan Presidential House, and FROST Art Museum's permanent collection.
Lizzie has explored a variety of subjects and concepts over the years, investigating each one in series. These works all share the common thread of capturing the essence of a moment or location, while recording the joy of pushing materials around on a surface. The pieces oftentimes reveal the history of how they were created, featuring thickly-applied layers of buttery paint in some areas and revealing thin under-paintings in others.
Most recently, plein air landscape painting has been Lizzie's focus. The urgency of capturing fleeting light and shifting subjects pairs well with her intuitive, energetic approach to painting, oftentimes resorting to directly applying and scraping pigment with gloved fingers.
