She portrays the coiled energy of three steeplechasers at the start of a race in her The Flag Is Down, an 11″ x 14″ oil on panel.

Chhuy and her husband moved to Free Union from Bedminster, N.J., in 2000. They settled on a home in rural Albemarle County because she “loves the foxes, the foxhunting, the horses, the mountains and the dirt roads.”
Chhuy rides with Farmington Hunt, although she often goes out 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. Her professional name is D. Haskell Chhuy. “Haskell covers the inherited ability, and Chhuy is for the support I get from my husband,” she said.
