Lorna Hunt

Though Lorna has drawn and painted for most of her life, it was not until the last fifteen years that she has been able to dedicate her time to fine art.
She enjoys the flow and spontaneity of watercolor, the rich, juicy qualities of oil paint and the immediacy of pastel.  She is inspired by the amazing beauty of the Sierra foothills to paint en Plein Air, combining her love of the outdoors with her passion for art.

Lorna feels privileged to have studied with many wonderful area artists and also to have participated in workshops given by nationally known artists.

She emigrated from Argentina to Pleasant Hill, Ca. with her parents in the early 60s, married and raised a family in Livermore, grew almonds in Ripon, and retired to Sonora where she can indulge in her artistic endeavors.

Lorna received an honorable mention for her acrylic painting, "Waiting" in the MLAA show honoring the AMGEN bicycle race.
She was awarded second place for her pastel painting, "Sunset" in the 2012 MLAA Fall Show.
"The Red Church" was selected by Senator Tom Berryhill for inclusion in the Senate's 2013-14 CA Contemporary Art Collection exhibit.

She shows her work at the Aloft Art Gallery in Sonora
and is a member of the Mother Lode Art Association. www.motherlodeartassociation.org
