About

Painting Passion

I first found my passion for art as a little girl growing up in a small Ohio town. I loved to draw. I could doodle and sketch for hours. I've always had, within me, the need to create. It is in my nature. It is my calling. As I grew, so did my skill and my love for my craft. As a young woman I attended the Columbus College for Art &Design and received my Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts. After I graduated, I did gallery shows and commissioned works. Then I fell in love, married, and had three wonderful boys. Anyone with kids can tell you, the creative process is a lot more difficult when all you hear is "Mom, Mom, Mom" all day. Wouldn't trade it for the world, but since my children have gotten older, I have been reinvigorated with a passion to paint.
The last five years, I have been painting and painting. Mostly keeping it to myself. For myself. Trying to find that place where my form was able to illustrate the creative image in my mind's eye. Sure, I find enjoyment and excitement in making pieces just for me, but I always strived for better. One day, I realized that I had amassed a ton of original oil paintings stacked along my studio walls. With the urging of friends and family, I decided that I could not and should not keep it all to myself. I see my artistic ability as a great gift, and gifts are meant to be shared. So, I started showing my paintings and making prints for sale, taking them to outdoor art shows, community art walks, and gallery shops. I was greatful for the positive response I received, and surprised by the number of people who wanted to purchase my art. That is why I decided to open an Etsy shop. What better way to share my passion and artistic vision with you?
I am the sole owner and creator of Monique Hoch Art. I do everything myself from start to finish. From the photographs that I take when the world around me inspires, I get my artistic vision. I plan the painting in my mind and picture how to translate it on to the canvas. Next, I lay out my vision. Layer after layer of oil paint, until the image arrives. It is born. It lives. The whole process can take weeks. I am lucky enough to have my studio in my home. This has two benefits. One, I get to stay close to my family. Two, it helps to save on cost, so I can keep my product as cost friendly as possible. I hope you appreciate the pieces I have to offer, and that they bring you the same happiness that they bring to me.
