Visitor Center Art Gallery
“A Different Stroke” Watercolor Paintings by Jamie Hussey are being featured in the Visitor Center Art Gallery through March 30.
I’ve been immersed in wildlife art most my life. Growing up my best days were spent with my Father searching for his next wildlife subject to sculpt, carve or photograph.
As a result, I, too, became inspired by the creatures around me. My paintings are a simplistic approach to the beauty of nature’s creatures. My brushstrokes are fluid and free flowing, lucid and simple. I let the paint choose where it goes. I use Japanese and Chinese calligraphy brushes which go against the rigor of the traditional watercolor ways. In a society aiming for perfection, I hope you can stop and see the beauty of the imperfections.
Jamie Hussey resides in Beaver, Utah with her husband and four young sons. She is a member of the Virgin Valley Artists Association. Her art can also be found in the Mesquite Fine Arts Center.
