Having a great love for the beauty of the many places she has traveled, Bitsy Hughes’ artwork reflects what she has seen and what she has felt in this world. Her painting style has been influenced over the years by several artists with whom she has studied with and by artists’ works that she has admired. She is extremely fascinated by the use of color, both vivid and neutral, and seeks to depict that fascination in her works. She loves the European landscape, the seaside marsh, and the everyday floral arrangement. Seeking to make these subjects “sing” on canvas is her ultimate goal in painting. She approaches her work with humility and awe, knowing that she has years of work ahead and much to learn about color and the definition of beauty.
