Description

Born in Holland in 1952, Ingrid Hunt moved to Creemore, Ontario, Canada with her family in 1966 at age 14. Upon completion of her schooling she worked for Air Canada as an airline attendant for sixteen years before pursuing a living via her life long passion: painting.

Ingrid’s interest in art became evident from an early age. “As soon as I was old enough to hold a crayon, I was drawing,” she claimed in one media interview.

In time she recognized a talent for highly detailed painting and this naturally led to trying her hand at miniatures. She produced and sold her first works in 1990. Since then she has painted hundreds of miniatures and is considered one of the top miniature artists in North America.

She has received numerous awards, including being named Canadian Artist of the Year in 1993 by Insight On Collectibles magazine. She continues today to paint and participates in dozens of art shows annually. She and partner Rene Frank also run their own gallery in Creemore.

Ingrid generally paints using a 'canvas' of 2" X 2" or 2" X 4". Recently she has begun producing 'panoramics' measuring 2" X 12". She paints with a 000 size brush and does not use a magnifying glass. Please note Ingrid does not reduce standard-size paintings to miniature size. She instead relies solely on a steady hand and steady eyes to produce amazingly small works of art. - from her webpage
