Through the opportunities provided by the artists and curators at Renaissance 2001, Hunterís artwork has been shown internationally including galleries in New York, San Francisco, England, Japan, Indiana and Wisconsin. Her artwork has been featured in 15 publications including five covers and on four television shows. She is a Ph.D. candidate in the Genetics Department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, holds a Masters of Science degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and graduated cum laude from the University of California, Berkeley.

Hunter creates abstract oil paintings using vivid colors influenced by the fluorescent staining of DNA and protein in the laboratory. The shapes of cells growing adjacent to each other visible only under the microscope influences the lines and patterns in her artwork. One line or shape will frequently define more than one figure, cell or molecule in her oil paintings referred to as hunterism. In certain parts of her paintings, she creates textures using an impasto technique while in other areas she blends the paint to a smooth finish. In nature one surface such as human skin appears smooth to the naked eye, but is comprised of many crevices visible under the microscope. Some might say that the scientific process is radically different from painting, but Hunter finds them complementary. Science requires the scientist not to impose order on nature, but rather to find order in nature. In the same way, Hunter's art hinting at both organic matter at the highest level (human faces) and at the smallest level (single cells), invites the viewer to discover order within her abstract images. Hunter's primary artistic influence is from the pioneers of abstract art, among others, Picasso, Kandinsky, and especially Miró.

RENAISSANCE 2001 is a project to create a global Internet Art Festival for the year 2001. Artists who believe that art can be a positive evolutionary force have started to build a worldwide network of LightHomes across the Internet. These pages will point to a future path for art in the new electronic era, and act as forum in which RENAISSANCE 2001 will be developed. New members and collaborators in every country are sought.
