This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A second generation niece of Taos painter Victor Higgins, Tricia Hurt has become a plein-air landscape painter in modernist style of the same area as well as other parts of the country including the East Coast and the South.

She was raised in Charlottesville, Virginia, and as a child was encouraged by her artist uncle who bought her first box of crayons for her. He also told her to throw away the coloring book and make her own art. She graduated from the University of Virginia where she was one of the first women to be admitted, but there were no art studies, so she enrolled in art through the teachers college.

In 1951, she married fellow student Bob Hurt, and they first lived in Philadelphia where she took studio classes from local landscape painter Edward Lis. She exhibited her paintings through the Chester Art Association, popular with the Brandywine painters.

In 1968, she and her family moved to Boston, and Tricia attended the Worcester Art Museum School and on weekends painted at Rockport and Gloucester. In 1970, she and her family moved to the Washington DC area, and she taught in her home studio for twelve years. But she wearied of the landscape of the Blue Ridge Mountains because everything was so green.

A relief change of scenery came in 1983 when she went to Taos, where she had first visited her uncle in 1947. There she felt at home as a painter, loving the brightness and the variety of the colors, and she and her husband began spending several months out of each year there, although they ultimately settled in Aiken, South Carolina.
