Artist Statementmary hubley fish painting (c) Mary Hubley

“My art explores the whispers of nature fused with a soft yet strong composition.

Every day, that means experiencing the soul of beach, birds, and people who surround me on my Florida island. Painting allows me to feel the world in depth. I seek all its nuances and hues and try to translate them into the canvas.

Seeing — really seeing, rather than just looking, means you’re living fully alive.”

“I look for wild places, energy, color, and light. I study beach rocks, seashells, and pond ripples. I can practically feel the vibrations emanating from the objects of nature, and I try to tap into their secret energy.”
