Pamela Hoke Friday Harbor, Washington

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.

    Artist Statement

    My expressionist, contemporary nature art has always been grounded in the stylistic representation of a deeper, more sensory-driven, and intimate connection with nature. Most of my work emerges as intuitive, sometimes subtle - other times bold - expressions of the powerful movement of energy, the synergy, and feelings of the senses engaging in direct experiences with nature.

    I primarily immerse myself in the beautiful, organic process of the masters by making my own paints with natural earth paint pigments and walnut oil. I love exploring and creating detailed, moving, sensual strokes with liner brushes with oil, watercolor, or acrylic paints; fine point pencils, charcoal, ink pens, or, when necessary, my stylus pen and iPhone. Basically, whatever is on hand during natural moments of inspiration.

    Being fully immersed in the natural world ignites my creativity and increases my sense of belonging and overall well-being. Scientific and psychological research validates this inspiring experience of nature amidst an era of climate change and unrest.

    Creating art that reconnects and restores the natural senses and sensibilities that our modern lifestyles have taken from us drives my process. My art and designs, nature awareness research, and sustainability consulting are all about creating soothing inspiration, a sense of calm, and hope for the restoration of harmony and equality between humans, nature, and the planet we share.
