MASTER Printmaker/Painter

Harland 'Hal' Shunk

Hal Shunk’s artwork is a combination of spontaneous action and control. As he creates he allows one action play-off another with the end result often becoming a unique combination of decisive strokes and interesting mis-haps, balanced, to form the colorful, masterfully-blended works he is known for.
