ABOUT HEATHER HOGAN

STATEMENT / Bio

Heather Hogan layers modern and traditional media into colorfully detailed compositions. Her work combines paint, ink, collaged elements and image transfers.

Mothering and homemaking with humor are themes in her most recent series entitled We Wear Many Hats and That Look From Mom.

Watching her babies grow into kids inspired her previous work on how grit and tenacity builds neurons in the brain and stronger communities.

Her artwork has graced the covers of Inside Magazine, beautified bike trails, and can be seen in solo and group shows throughout Northern California.
