About Darleen Hunt
I began exhibiting my work at juried shows after retiring from the public relations department of NASA. Through the years, I have studied with many nationally noted artists and developed my art style.
I also paint on silk fabrics using the French Serti technique. My work is exhibited in numerous corporate and private collections.
I have exhibited my artwork in many reputed art festivals and events.
I live in Merritt Island, in a rural area with a koi pond, fruit trees, and tropical vegetation. My art often revolves around these subjects.
My husband, Jerry, and I are blessed with three children, seven grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren.
Sharing Artwork with Local Communities
The Merritt Island Wildlife Association
I have a wide range of interests, and I love to explore art in many forms.
I like to paint tropical foliage, wildlife, and portraits of people in their daily activities. Usually, my artwork portrays strong light and shadows, and to establish that I use a wide range of values and colors in my art. Painting helps me find answers to life’s hardest questions. I am fascinated with the effects that can be obtained with watercolors.
