Jason Hugger served in the U.S. Army for six years, and draws artistic inspiration from Middle Eastern deserts. After graduating from Ohio’s Columbus College of Art and Design, Hugger (jasonhugger.com) landed at Phoenix’s Eleven East Ashland gallery, where he exhibited until 1996. “When I came out to show my work, I looked around and thought, ‘This is the place for me,’” Hugger says. By day, he works in a call center, but in his free time, he and his wife cruise junkyards to find the next focal point for his paintings.
