As she emerges into her mid-career, Pamela Hoke’s focus remains on inspiring others to honor their natural selves, through her own process of connecting with her natural attractions as unconditional love, through her art, and contagious creative approach to life. She is best known for her potent, magnified paintings and drawings, full of deep crevasses and contrasts, with strong, determined, yet flowing strokes. Whether she is drawing by pen, painting with watercolors, oils, or acrylics, she pours her love for nature as her ultimate life source, her muse, into each stroke. Her adventurous spirit transcends into her unconventional techniques regarding color, composition of subjects, and her use of her tools and mediums. Her zesty spirit and risk taking in her art, and her way of life, subsequently leads her viewers, students and collectors finding themselves in an inspiring adventure of infinite visual and subconscious possibilities.

“To me, knowing Nature is knowing love.  I sense my primary purpose during my walk on this planet is to simply share Nature’s Creative, Intelligent Love as a solution through my art, writing and various educational adventures. I believe that a large part of the solution to today’s dilemmas is that we as humans individually embrace our next phase of development and maturity as a species by effectively learning how to balance our Natural Minds with our Modern Minds.”
