Hunter Law Fine Art

I grew up in rural Maine, graduating from Foxcroft Academy in 2014. I went on to study studio art for two years at the University of Maine, before starting an eight-month tattooing apprenticeship—where I became licensed, and worked under veteran tattoo artist, Cory Nash, for a year. Thereafter, I began pursuing my dream of specializing in landscape and wildlife art. In 2019, I was selected for the Baxter State Park Visiting Artist Program—where I facilitated workshops and held an open studio for the local community. Additionally, I was accepted to display my artwork at the Moosehead Lake Artisan Village in 2018 and 2019. More recently, I participated in the 2020 Maine Migratory Waterfowl Stamp Art Contest put on by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife where I placed 3rd. I continue pursuing my aspiration to be one of Maine’s premiere landscape and wildlife artists.

Whether abstract or more realistic, my recent work has been largely focused on light and reflection. I primarily paint landscapes, trying to capture a mood evoked by a specific time of day. Water is often present in my work because of its reflective qualities that emphasize the light source and draw out the character of the subject. The culmination of light and reflection—be it light dancing across water or a soft gradient from warm to cool—greatly influences the pervading tone of a painting, and creates movement in a sometimes stagnant landscape.
