Pat Hogan specializes in paintings inspired by nature. Recent works reflect her respect and love for our beautiful Berkshires, the mountains and sea coast of Maine and the vanishing islands of the Chesapeake Bay. She is passionate about watercolor and the illusions created through the transparency and luminescence of the medium. New work includes figure drawings and mixed media pieces. Her paintings are in private collections in England, Sweden, and throughout the United States.
Also an experienced teacher, Hogan offers painting and drawing instruction for novice and experienced artists. For sixteen years she taught at IS183, previously known as Interlaken School of Art in Stockbridge, MA, where she served as Department Head, Drawing and Painting before resigning in 2008 to pursue other interests.
