Caprice Hogg first picked up a paintbrush in 1994 and has been painting across Canada – indoors and outdoors – ever since. Her life and career has been utterly immersed in the world of art. From all of her travels, it is the landscape of the west that truly speaks to Caprice and is the subject matter that most often winds up on her canvases. After years of painting and exhibiting, Caprice first opened the doors of Caprice Fine Art & Co Studio Gallery in 2003, nestled amongst the beautiful Rocky Mountains in Kimberley, British Columbia. It is here, completely surrounded by nature, where Caprice lives, paints, sells and teaches art amongst the alpine air and this inspires her daily. Her original oil paintings are now in private and corporate collections across the world from Canada, the United States, Europe, and New Zealand. Her close relationship with those who have purchased her paintings is an honour and a cornerstone of her work.
After painting full time for many years, it was a natural progression to start teaching art. Caprice’s mentors taught her the rules of fine art using the same principles used by the Masters that inspire her, such as Michelangelo, the Group of Seven, and Emily Carr, to name a few. Her insatiable thirst for knowledge of art become an obsession as Caprice eagerly reads each and every art book she can get her hands on. She feels privileged to pass on their legacy to her students today. During her years as a teacher, Caprice has 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. Caprice believes that art is the connecting link that goes far beyond oil paints, canvases and brushes. Her goal is to bring out those hidden gems in her students in the same gentle and profound way that her mentors did for her.
