Hunter Parker is a CT award-winning freelance, professional artist known for her precise and intricate graphite portraits. Parker has been recognized for several awards including the Connecticut Association of Schools Outstanding Arts Award in 2015 in her senior year of high-school. As a result of her passions, she is the creator and founder of HuntersTinyArt and HunterDoesArt on Etsy. Parker not only creates and sells artwork but she attends art shows, develops art-related projects, teaches customized art lessons, fulfills commission requests, and collaborates with other artists on projects.
Parker uses a variety of mediums ranging from graphite, watercolor, pastels, acrylic paints, and even utilizes digital art as it adds diversity to the artistic process and joy in creation.
Parker’s inspiration stems from her daily life and her love for the complexity of the human body. She genuinely enjoys drawing other people to help remind them of the beauty in their image.
As a Dorothy Goodwin Scholar at the University of Hartford, Parker has collaborated with New England National Scenic Trail’s Artist in Residence, Marisa Williamson, to create Archive of Black Female Pain which combines her interest of history, art, and medicine. The project addresses the history of medical exploitation and the black female trailblazers that revolutionized Connecticut communities and medicine. Interviews with fellow black female medical professionals and artists address the stigmas against black women in medicine while highlighting the importance of art as a healing and self-care mechanism.
After her project, Parker has attended 2 Juried Art Shows (CT and NJ) at Inside Small Art Exhibits. Hunter has received an Honorable Mention Award for her presented artwork Self-Portrait which was sold at the opening session. Since then, Parker continued to be involved in art projects and shows PFLAG Rockland’s Pride in Bloom Virtual Exhibit & Auction 2020, and Arts Council of Rockland’s Art Meets Dream Exhibit 2021 (Present)
