Caprice Hogg

I first picked up a paintbrush in 1994 and have been painting across Canada – indoors and outdoors – ever since. My life and career has been immersed in the world of art. After years of painting and exhibiting, I began Caprice Fine Art & Co Studio Gallery in 2003 in Kimberley, British Columbia. This is where I live, work, write and teach.

After painting full time for many years, it was a natural progression to start teaching art. My mentors taught me the rules of fine art using the same principles used by the Masters that inspire me, such as Michelangelo, the Group of Seven, and Emily Carr, to name a few. My insatiable thirst for knowledge of art become an obsession and I eagerly read each and every art book I can get my hands on. It is a privilege to pass on their legacy to my students today. During my years as a teacher, I have worked with elementary school children, disadvantaged youths, persons with disabilities, and retired people; in person and online from across Canada. During this process of community and creativity, magical things can happen. I believe that art is the connecting link that goes far beyond oil paints, canvases and brushes. My goal is to bring out those hidden gems in my students in the same gentle and profound way that my mentors did for me.

Throughout my career I have honed many skills and am proud to be not only an artist and a teacher, but also an entrepreneur and a writer. Owning a small-business in rural BC as a female entrepreneur has it’s many challenges, however I attribute these challenges to the success and happiness I have found in my career. Throughout these experiences I have collected many interesting and captivating stories that I am now sharing through my writing. These writings can be found on my blog.

I am further working with Cloud Lake Literary as a Contributing Book Reviewer for their online content. Sharing my love of books with my followers is another inspiring aspect to my daily life.
