Featured Artist Cary Hulett


Location: Artists
I am a lifelong resident of North Florida, living in Jacksonville Beach before moving to Yulee in 1996.

I went from high school to the US Army where I served as a medic in Viet Nam. Upon returning home I entered into a long career in the construction management field. It wasn’t until retiring that I began to paint never having any formal art training.

Most of my work is Acrylic done on heavy Watercolor paper because I like the look of a matted and framed piece. Over the last few years, I have sold to mostly local markets and done a few consignment pieces including several pieces for the hall of fame Miami Dolphins football star Larry Csonka.

You can see all of my works on Facebook at Pine Grove Art by Cary.

There have been many local artists and craftsmen that have inspired me most important was John Gavagan (Capt’ Gav.) who was the one to urge me to try painting and Judy Pino who also encouraged me.
