Chris de Hoog is an artist from Geelong, Victoria. His work is abstract and inspired by memories and impressions of nature. He finds inspiration in his home town of Geelong by running around the Barwon River and heading to the beautiful beaches nearby. Chris is a graphic designer turned painter who found his happy place in front of the canvas. He loves exploring new techniques in his painting and especially loves trying new colour combinations. He is married to Amie and they have 4 kids. His family are his biggest fans as well as his most honest critics, so they are good to have around when he is in the studio! He hopes his paintings bring joy, colour and a small reflection of creation into people’s lives wherever they end up.
