Hester Ohbi has been drawing and painting since childhood where she spent and still spends summers amid the rocks, fields, rivers, and mountains of central Pennsylvania. Her graduate studies in France afforded time to engage in European and American art. Shortly thereafter she became interested in the religions of Asia, especially Buddhism. A career in international development took Hester into the intensely colorful landscapes of Asia and Africa. Formal art studies included drawing and painting classes at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington DC and painting classes at the Art League in Alexandria, Va.

In  2010 and in 2014 Hester had solo shows at the Dumbarton Concert  Gallery in Georgetown, Washington, DC.  A large piece was commissioned for Development Alternatives, Bethesda, Md.  and another large piece hangs at Kaiser Permanente.  Washington DC commission of Arts bought one of her paintings for its Art Bank collection.

Over the years she has been selected for  juried shows at the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum, Washington DC,  The Art League, Alexandria, Va., City Hall, Alexandria, Va.,  The Hill Gallery, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC, and at the Blackrock Gallery in Germantown, Md.
