Steph Joy Hogan is an award-winning mixed-media painter and Lansing, Michigan native. She revels in bold color statements, unknown worlds, and the absurd and delightful all around us. Inspired by the unbridled imaginations of children, and working primarily with acrylic paint, ink, and scraps of found paper ephemera, Steph intuitively creates layered skyscapes, imaginary universes, and the whimsical creatures that inhabit them.
Steph Joy Hogan was voted Top artist in the 2021 City Pulse Top of the Town contest (Top 3: 2018, 2019, 2020) and her recognizably vibrant and whimsical artwork has been featured in Katalyst Gallery, Lansing Art Gallery, Main street Art, Northville Art House and several exhibitions with Mid-Michigan Art Guild and Working Women Artists, of which she recently served as President. Her painting, “Lion” (No. 1) was highlighted on a 2019 Art in the Sky billboard and her original mixed media artwork can be found permanently installed in Impression 5 Science Center, the Susan and Jack Davis Nature Pavilion and Gallery at Fenner Nature Center, and the headquarters of The Davies Project.
