Meet Caprice Hogg

Oil | Acrylic | Watercolor

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.

Meet Bethanne Cople

Oil Master

Using expressive and abstracted brushwork to convey the nature of the scene, and relying on value and ambiguity of line to reveal the mystery of the landscape, I seek to evoke strong emotion from the viewer. Such ambiguity also invites personal interpretation and memories to emerge.

Bethanne Kinsella Cople attended The George Washington University where she enjoyed a classical fine art curriculum. An avid cross country horseback rider and skier, Bethanne loves expansive outdoor vistas. The landscape is a natural source of inspiration… both en plein air and in the studio.

Over the course of her career Bethanne has received many honors. . Most recently, she received the “Award of Excellence” at the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters annual exhibit, Jackson Hole, Wyoming; the “Dick Bell Bookmaven” Award of Excellence, American Impressionist Society, Annual National Exhibit, Tennessee; “People’s Choice Award”, at the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club, New York, New York exhibition; and twice won “Best Pastoral”, at the Plein Air-Easton Invitational Paintouts, Easton, Maryland. She also received “Honorable Mention” at the Eleventh and Fifteenth Annual Invitational Paintouts, Carmel, California; and “Best Traditional Painting,” 107th and 113th Annual Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Open Exhibition, National Arts Club, New York City. She was also honored to have her painting “White Barn, Cool River” on the set of the USA TV series, “Necessary Roughness”, and in the major motion picture “Vice” .
