Mikee Huber is a Dayton, Ohio artist whose artistic obsession is creating intuitive, colorful, and expressive multi-media nonobjective and abstract paintings. Her combination of colors, shapes, and patterns show her interpretation of the human connection with nature and manmade surroundings.
An award-winning artist, most recently selected as the 2020 Emerging Artist of the Year at Art Comes Alive (ACA), hosted by Art Design Consultants (ADC). She also received an Artist Opportunity Grant in 2019, from the Montgomery County Arts and Cultural District (MCACD) and administered by Culture Works.
Mikee Huber draws inspiration from music such as disco, funk, and MJ, from scientific images at the molecular level, as well as patterns and textures in nature. She earned an Associate of Art in Fine Art, an Associate of Science in Commercial Art, and a Photography Certificate from Clark State College in Springfield, OH. Huber has worked as a graphics designer, supporting scientists and engineers for over 25 years. Her art is in private collections throughout the United States.
Active in the arts community, Mikee Huber currently serves as a board member of the Dayton Society of Artists (DSA). She is also a member artist of DSA, The Contemporary, the Springfield Museum of Art (Ohio), and the Dublin Area Art League (DAAL).
The purpose of the workshop series, Introducing..., is to acquaint DSA members and the community to different mediums and methods in the visual arts. In conjunction, the attendees will get to know the instructing artist, their background, and tips and tricks of their trade.
