Honey Hostetler, an Idaho native and member of our Seaside Gallery and Goods Collective, has lived in Newport Beach with her husband Cliff for over 50 years. Honey has always been creative and enjoys needlepoint, embroidery, quilting and even calligraphy. About 7 years ago, at the age of 74, Honey took a 3 day oil painting workshop in Coeur d Alene Idaho while on summer holiday with family. The art teacher was very encouraging and gave her confidence in her hidden talent. This opened up a whole new passion in Honey’s life. She has continued to develop her craft by taking additional classes and workshops in both Idaho and Southern California. Although she paints serious landscapes and still life, she also loves to paint animals with a humorous touch. She loves painting dogs and has done numerous commissions for those wanting to honor their cherished pet with a portrait. Honey joined Seaside Gallery and Goods in June of 2016 and loves the creative camaraderie, wonderful customers, and the support and friendships she has found here. All of us at Seaside enjoy having Honey with us and we know once you meet her, you will immediately sense her warm and kind heart as we all do.
