A native of Central Florida, David Hunter is a master printmaker and experienced art educator, who is well-known on the Crealdé campus for his wry sense of humor and remarkable patience with teaching his art to students, adults and children alike. Printmaking is a process of creating images, or etchings, that involves using acid to etch lines into a hard metal plate, and then using that plate to make prints. Hunter was instrumental in forming the Florida Printmakers Society in 1986, becoming its first president at that time. He actively participates in art festivals and teaches workshops throughout the Southeast and is a member of the Miniature Art Society of Florida, the Miniature Painter, Sculptors & Gravers Society of Washington, D.C. and the Miniature Artists of America.
