About The Artist
Sun Hwa Gearhart
Sun Hwa studied art privately in Korea where she mastered Oriental water color and painting in oils. She later traveled with her husband to Germany where she continued honing her skills and added acrylic painting to her abilities.
Upon arriving permanently in the United States, she continued her studies under the tutelage of Mickey Touchton, renowned in the Baltimore/Annapolis area as both a teacher and an artist.
While studying under Mrs. Touchton, she realized her true calling in art, wildlife and nature using the mixed media of pencils and acrylics.
Her forte is realism and very close attention to every detail. She was selected by jury to participate in a private showing of her art work at Maryland Hall, College of Art located in Annapolis, Md. She has also participated in the annual art show in Cocoa, Florida where she received excellent reviews.
Sun Hwa has evoked both smiles and tears of joy as the result of the many paintings of pets and loved ones she has been commissioned to create.
