About

K.C. Hulsman’s photography seeks to immortalize with her camera that singular, fleeting moment of beauty and wonder so often found in nature.

She enjoys traipsing across the Texas countryside in pursuit of wildflowers, as well as capturing those quintessentially Texan shots from horses, to Texas Longhorns. Specializing specifically in nature photography inspired by the vivid colors and enlarged flowers of Georgia O’Keeffe’s paintings as well as the impressionistic majesty of Claude Monet–the flowers, trees, and yes even the birds and the bees are often found within her viewfinder.

She just sees art around her everywhere and enjoys painting the world with the prismatic visions she finds behind her lens. She constantly looks to the photographic works of some of the masters of fine art photography: the monochromatic landscapes of Ansel Adams, the nature photography of Florian Schulz, the architectural visions of Andrew Prokos, and so many more.

K.C. is a local artist and Hurst resident that graduated from Grapevine High School, and became an alumna of the University of Texas at Arlington where she received a Master of Arts in the Humanities. In addition to her passion for photography, she has also studied drawing, glass blowing, stained glass, as well as metal and jewelry. She possesses professional experience in graphic design.

Her photographic work has been exhibited and sold from New York to Texas, and she’s even had opportunities to sell directly to art connoisseurs from the local Pottery Barn store in Southlake. Main ST. Arts Festival Fort Worth, one of the top 3 juried art festivals in all the US, named her an Emerging Artist in 2018. She has received awards from nationally juried art competitions, and she’s had her work invited to exhibit in regional, national and internationally juried shows. She’s currently a member of the Texas Photographic Society, Grapevine Art Project, and formerly the Trinity Arts Guild.
