Whimsical World Builder - Visual Storyteller - Color Enthusiast

About the artist:


Steph Joy Hogan is a painter, mixed-media artist and Lansing native.  Though she studied art at both Michigan State University and the University of Iowa, she considers herself a primarily self taught painter.  Steph credits her parents and sisters for developing her love of visual arts, her over-active imagination, and her outlandish sense of humor... all of which shine through in her whimsical paintings. 


From tiny details to broad and frenetic brush strokes, Steph revels in bold color statements, unknown worlds, and the absurd and delightful all around us. She draws inspiration from artists who have influenced her as long as she can remember, including Dr. Seuss, Mary Blair, and Jim Henson.  Working primarily with acrylic paint, inks, and paper ephemera Steph intuitively creates semi-abstract paintings, often including illustrative details inspired by colors and shapes that are developed through layers and layers of experimentation. 


Steph is a Top 5 Lansing City Pulse Top of the Town Visual Artist (2018, 2019) and her recognizably vibrant and whimsical artwork has been featured in Katalyst Gallery, Lansing Art Gallery and several exhibitions with Mid-Michigan Art Guild. Her painting, “Lion” (No. 1) is currently highlighted on a 2019 Art in the Sky billboard and “The Good Good Garden” hangs in Impression 5 Science Center. Her mixed-media painting, “The Invitation” will be showcased in the Susan and Jack Davis Nature Pavilion at Fenner Nature Center upon it’s opening in December 2019.  



Artist Statement:


"The Unknown Universe is an ongoing series exploring uncharted worlds, from finger painted planets to the whimsical creatures that call them home.  I hope to create a body of work that celebrates the bold, the unique, the vulnerable and the brave. Art that explores the unknown universes within us, not deep dark depths, demons or ghosts but the bright shining joyful lights, no matter how dim."
