"When someone looks at my paintings, I want them to feel as if they are right there witnessing first hand what the scene is depicting. I want them to feel the peace, comfort and joy that I experience when I'm studying the outdoors. I also want it to be a time for them to reflect on the beauty of God's many blessings that seem to go mostly unnoticed in our busy world.” Abraham Hunter said that he first began to realize that God had given him a talent at 12 years old. At 14, he began to hone his skills and pursue his artistic talent as a career. Being self-taught, it was hard at first since there are no wildlife artists in his home area. By studying nature first hand, and using reference photos, Abraham was able to improve without any tutoring at all. Over the past 4 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. If there is one thing I want to capture in my work and be able to share it with my collectors, it would be the abundance and beauty that I enjoy from a close relationship with Jesus Christ and an awe for His marvelous creation.
