Mysterious Light in John Hulsey’s Atmospheric Painting.
John Hulsey is a life-long professional artist with broad experience and expertise in multiple painting mediums, including oil, watercolor, pastel, inks, dyes and gouache.
His other professional media include printmaking, photography and sculpture. “I have always believed in the Renaissance idea that an artist should be curious about the world and should constantly educate himself and experiment, so that he is defined by the quality of his creative abilities, not limited or restricted to any one medium or form .This creative voice, then, shines through whatever materials come to hand.”
He is the recipient of numerous awards and grants. One of his paintings was featured on the cover of Time Magazine and his paintings are included in many private and corporate collections.
His work has been exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions, and in galleries in New York, Ohio, South Carolina, Missouri, Kansas, Texas, Wyoming and California.
John is also a dedicated and popular teacher, who has been helping other aspiring artists grow their skills and artistic voices for over three decades. Along with his artist – wife Ann Trusty, the couple designed, organized and taught painting workshops in France and Italy for several decades. In pandemic times, which ended those European workshops and any in-studio classes, he quickly learned to teach painting classes online, offering live watercolor and oil demonstrations each week.
John’s art work has been featured in American Artist magazine, Watercolor Magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur magazine and International Artist Magazine, where he was named a Master Painter of the United States. He has been awarded residencies by the National Parks Service at Glacier National Park, Yosemite National Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park.
