Megan Paquette Stepe is an Associate Course Director at Full Sail University, teaching Art History and History of Visual Communications.
Prior to joining Full Sail, Megan was the Curator for the Museum of Florida Art and Culture as well as an instructor of Art History at South Florida State College. She has also taught at Seminole State College and was the Curator of its Fine Arts Gallery.
Having a career in the arts means you wear a lot of hats, so Megan has additional experience in painting conservation, non-profit management, art-consulting, judging and fine-arts collection management. She is also an artist who likes to work in mixed media.
Megan received her M.A. in Art History from Florida State University and her B.A., also in Art History, from University of Central Florida. She’s had the pleasure of interning or volunteering at most of the art and cultural institutions in Orlando, including the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, and the Orlando Museum of Art.
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 Crealde School of Art in Winter Park (FL) and, more recently, began teaching acrylic painting. He was named Crealde'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.
