September 2020 Artist of the Month is Wanda Hubbard


Wanda Hubbard is Artist of the Month.
September 2020



Wanda Hubbard was born in Birmingham Alabama and is a self-taught artist. She likes to paint using vivid colors and experiments with new techniques and styles. A constant theme in Wanda’s art is coastal life. She paints and shares her work so others can hopefully find enjoyment in her art.

Layering mediums to create movement and depth is her favorite technique. For her, the most interesting paintings start with an acrylic pour layer. Using the acrylic pour base, she looks for sea life in the paint much like others look for animal shapes in the clouds. She then paints the image that she’s found and enhances the back ground to create an environment. Another favorite technique is alternating resin and acrylic layers when painting. This adds dimension and enhances the key elements on the canvas.

Her goal is to present realistic representations of sea life. Her passion for the brilliant colors was inspired by the painting, "Imperial Zebras" by Tie-Feng Jiang. With Jiang as her inspiration she created her own version of his work and called it "Zebras in Motion".

Throughout the years, art has continued to provide relaxation and joy for Wanda. She is excited to see where the future will lead her and the new art that she will create.

Stop by the gallery to see Wanda's latest additions to the gallery. We hope to see you soon. Be well.

My name is Jaqueline Grear, and I’m so honored to have been chosen as this month’s Artist of the Month. I’m a self-taught painter who first started painting in Southern Illinois in the 1970s. Although I now paint mostly beach landscapes and coastal wildlife, I began my career in art painting canvasses of rural Midwestern scenery. I’ve always been drawn to the beauty I see in nature around me, which is why many of my early paintings depicted the quaint family farms and the gently rolling country sides that I grew up around.

During my time painting in Southern Illinois, my artwork was purchased by several local institutions, including a museum, art gallery, and hospital. My artwork was also bought by then Illinois State Senator Jim Ria, as well as former Illinois U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Paul Simon. I was also recognized with a Best of Show award at an Illinois statewide art exhibition.

Shortly after achieving regional success with my artwork, I took a lengthy hiatus from painting. I founded a small construction business with my family and stayed busy running operations there for more than 25 years. In 2006, I retired and moved south to live on the Gulf Coast. The beauty I found here inspired me to pick up my paintbrush again, and I haven’t been able to put it down since.

I’m so thankful to be able to spend so much of my time now making art. It’s a wonderful way to stay busy, and it’s a hobby I love very much. I’m honored to be recognized as this month’s Artist of the Month, and I hope you will enjoy looking at my collection of paintings at Artworks Studio and Gallery located in the Villagio Town Centre, Perdido Key.
