BETTY-ANN HOGAN

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

My pieces involve my love and intense passion for nature. When I am in nature I feel spiritually connected to a power greater than myself. Most recently I have done a series of trees in different seasons, times of day and changing light. I put two similar pieces together, When they are together they respond to and change each other each other.

I walk outside and take mental pictures of my surroundings. I take photos of those images that stand out for me. That is the place to start.
