Artist D. Haskell Chhuy, whose artwork has appeared numerous times on the Chronicle cover, lives in Free Union, Va. She employs the rolling Virginia countryside in many of her paintings.
Chhuy and her husband moved to Free Union from Bedminster, N.J., in 2000. They settled on a home in rural Albemarle County because “I love the foxes, the foxhunting, the horses, the mountains and the dirt roads.”
Chhuy rides with Farmington, although she often goes with the hunt on foot so as to take photos for her work.
She attended the University of Massachusetts and then studied printmaking under a noted expert at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris.
This week’s cover, Over The Dam, is an 11″ x 14″ oil painted in 2009.
