|Russ Hogger Paintings|
Welcome to my website
My website is a combination of some my earlier works and new work. Most of what I paint
are landscapes, also I have included some of my figuritive and watercolours on this site.
I like to think of my website as an online art gallery for all to enjoy. Thanks for dropping in.
Born and raised in Ipswich, Suffolk, in the UK. At age eleven I was
privileged to attend children's art classes at the Ipswich Art School.
In 1963 my wife and I arrived in Edmonton, Alberta , Canada. In 1977
I took a few basic art classes with the UofA extension program. I am
basically a self taught artist. For twelve years I was an instructor wth
Edmonton Continuing Education, teaching watercolor classes. At
present I paint in the acrylic medium. I like acrylic because it has a
very forgiving quality. Over the years I have been in numerous group
shows and the occasional featured artist show.
My philosophy in art is be different. Give your audience something
they have never seen before.
