ABOUT HEATHER HOGAN

STATEMENT / Bio

Heather Hogan layers modern and traditional media into colorfully detailed compositions. Her passion for tools and technology have led her to incorporate laser cut materials, stencils, printmaking, and assemblage into her mixed media artwork.

Concepts and ideas explored in her work include family, gender roles, grit, travel/exploration, and building connections and communities through art and humor. Her work utilizes her skills in computer-based graphic design and printmaking through layers of high-contrast designs over colorful backgrounds.

Ms. Hogan teaches workshops and classes, makes public art, and is open to collaborations and new challenges. Her artwork has graced the covers of Inside Magazine, beautified bike trails and electric boxes, and can be seen in solo and group shows throughout Northern California.
