Al Hogue

Al Hogue’s love of nature led him to express his passion in art, and share what he saw and imagined. He began drawing at a very young age, but only started painting at the age of 32. He is completely self-taught. His paintings are a blend of fantasy and realism. They invite the viewer to step into the painting and feel the healing power of nature.
