Profound sensory experiences of nature unfold in artist Pamela Hoke's stylistically primitive representation of the world and her connection to it. Her vast array of subjects, including landscapes, florals, and animal portraits, emerge as intuitive expressions of energy in motion. She creates her own paint with natural earth and mineral pigments mixed with walnut oil—a beautiful and organic process used by the old masters. Pamela received her degree in fine arts at Ohio State University. Being fully immersed in the natural world ignited her creativity and increased her sense of belonging and overall well-being. She shares a semi-private studio with a group of painters on San Juan Island called the Friday Harbor Atelier. Her station remains tidy, but only until she unleashes her prowess. "No barriers and limits during the creating process," says Pamela. Her works have been featured in Ohio, Florida, and Washington and published in Martin County's local newspaper. Currently, in graduate school at the University of Washington, Pamela aims to develop as a leader and polish decades of research in the final version of her illustrated book. She enjoys hiking, cultural events, and volunteering with her loved ones when she's not creating art.
