About Candi Hogan

Recently relocating to New Mexico, the landscapes of the Southwest and adobe architecture have captured my attention. In a still life painting I like to incorporate objects of cultural significance - a Mexican blanket, a piece of Southwestern pottery, a Tuscan urn, or a mere swag of Hawaiian fabric. Having lived in the Hawaiian Islands for twelve years I am eager to revisit the vibrant tropical colors and seascapes in my painting. Extensive travel around the world while living in various regions of the United States has broadened my perception while sparking creativity. Subject matter: unlimited!

Our world is infused with light and color that can transport us from the sometimes harsh black and white reality of everyday life. I hope that when you view my work you may feel better for just a moment, and that you enjoy seeing the way I have interpreted images from our world in paint.

Often asked why I paint, Georgia O'Keefe answered the question best: “I want to fill a space in a beautiful way.”

I am a member of the Artist Guild Of Southern New Mexico and the Plein Air Painters of New Mexico.
