I often discuss design topics that feature big-name design talents of national stature, but today I would like to begin a series of posts that showcase the artistry of some of the talented people here in my own area: people I work with every day who make huge contributions to the local design community in Knoxville.
The featured artist is Regann Hunt of Art Elegance, http://www.artelegance.net/. Regann is skilled at faux finishes, textures, venetian plaster, etc. But what sets her apart is her artistic skill. Her murals and paintings cannot fully be appreciated on a computer screen, but I can attest they are fabulous.
This is the other painting for the media room project. It is a take-off on the "Ben-Hur" type movie. Notice how Regann used mine and her name in the credits, as well as the homeowners names in the starring roles in the painting above.
Beach mural for a tanning salon.
This close-up of the dolphin from the ocean mural illustrates Regann's artistic talent. It is photographic in detail.
Sweet mural in a child's room.
A beautiful Grecian lady painting. I love the framing and sconces.
A detailed jungle scene.
A wonderful tone-on-tone mural of a train.
I am always amazed at the details in Regann's animal paintings. This mural was done for a bar.
Another shot of the mural Regann did for a bar in East Tennessee.
An adorable toile design for a girl's room.
A close-up of the adorable rendition of a nursery rhyme my Dad recited to me when I was a baby. (See my post on this nursery in my archives.)
A wide shot of the hand-painted cribs for our showhouse nursery.
The lovely Ms. Regann herself, striking a pose in front of one of her murals.
I hope you have enjoyed my little piece on Regann Hunt, of Art Elegance here in Knoxville. Regann is extremely talented, but she is a wonderful person as well. She can turn any idea into art and she travels and ships her work as well! A wonderful resource for me and maybe for you as well.
