Abraham Hunter first began to realize that God gave him a talent at 12 years of age. By the age of 14, with no wildlife artists in his home area, and no family members with artistic gifts, Abraham decided to pursue his artistic talent and taught himself how to paint. Abraham began by studying nature through exploration and took photographs to use as reference.
Abraham likes to work in oils and acrylics. He enjoys watercolor painting too. Abraham strives for extreme photorealism (most of the time) because he feels it properly honors Godís handiwork. By painting natureís intricate details, Abraham is able to communicate to the viewer the abundant beauty that surrounds us.
Abraham often portrays somewhat utopia-like scenes because he likes to imagine living in a world without man-made drama. He wants his viewer to feel the peace, comfort and joy that he experiences when he is studying the outdoors.
Over the years, Abraham has been amazed at how much success he has managed to achieve. He attributes this success to his faith in God, and the support of family and friends.
