Kate Hoyer Bio
“If you find something no one else is doing, you are onto something”, I remember my dad telling me that when I was just in grade school. I learned later that it’s not only finding something that no one else is doing which is important but also continuing a path that many artists have walked before. When I started working with stripes, it wasn’t until I created my first flower from stripes that, I knew I found what I was looking for. I wanted an art form that would give me the ability to define an object in a way that was new. I found my art path when I was just starting high school but did not realize it until I was in my early 20’s. What I mean by that is, I had been creating color schemes with stripes and using them in abstract drawings for several years before it hit me that I had found my passion. By then I had fallen in love with Van Gogh’s use of color and the feel of his paintings and O’Keeffe’s slick, smooth, and precise work.
