David Hunter

Armed with a B.A. (1969) and an M.A. (1972) in Zoology, David Hunter actually began his art career by illustrating his entire Master’s thesis with his own, original pen-and- ink drawings. By 1977, after a nine-month stint as a research associate in the Biology Department at U.C.F. (then F.T.U.) and teaching middle-school science for five years, he knew a change was in the wind. He made his first forage into art shows with pen-and- ink drawings and, in 1978, after branching into printmaking, became a full-time artist. He has never looked back. Mr. Hunter has exhibited his widely acclaimed work in art fairs, galleries and art competitions throughout the eastern United States. Since the early ‘90s, he has competed in miniature art competitions across the U.S., and is a consistent award winner in both the art shows and competitions. In 2008, Mr. Hunter began teaching printmaking at the Crealdé School of Art in Winter Park (FL) and, more recently, began teaching acrylic painting. He was named Crealdé’s 2015 Instructor of the Year. In 1985, Mr. Hunter decided to limit his images to sizes no larger than 8” X 10”. Each image is a masterpiece of intricate design and detail. Tightly cropped as a photographic portrait would be, the eyes of his character studies reveal their inner selves and personalities. His nautical and nature scenes depict larger, more expansive themes that belie their small scale and format. Each edition of prints is limited to impressions of 100, after which he cuts off the plate’s upper right-hand corner. Mr. Hunter enjoys canoeing Florida’s rivers and saltwater fishing in his spare time. He resides in Winter Park.




Jane Jennigs

As a charter board member of ArtHaus of Volusia and Flagler Counties (Florida), Jane Hubbard Jennings’ commitment to our children’s art education helps define her as an artist, educator, and an individual deeply committed to bringing up our children in the presence of art. Recently retired from the board of ArtHaus after serving more 60,000 children per year for nearly 18 years, her commitment to children’s art education through fundraising, program develop-ment and exhibition opportunities for youth defines her passion as a visual arts advocate. She studied at East Carolina University and later at Daytona Beach Community College, now Daytona State College, graduating with an AA degree in Fine Arts. She has attended workshops and conferences throughout the United States and was awarded a fellowship at Atlantic Center for the Arts (New Smyrna Beach, FL), an internationally acclaimed multi-disciplinary arts mentoring facility.

Mrs. Jennings’ current work focuses on textiles as an art form.  The strength of her work is in design and composition. With a flair for photography, Mrs. Jennings uses digitally layered and manipulated photographs printed on cotton and silk, then collages them with hand-dyed fabrics on box forms.  In addition, she creates sculptural pieces made from found objects, clay figures and fibers, often commenting on social issues.  She is represented by Arts on Douglas (New Smyrna Beach, FL), and Piedmont Craftsmen (Winston-Salem, NC), where, in 2011, she was made a lifetime member.  Mrs. Jennings, from Port Orange, FL, is married with three grown children, three grandchildren, and three cats.
