Highlighting ROAM Gallery Artist
Margriet Hogue - Painter
Margriet Hogue was born in the Netherlands in Deventer, 1951. She spent her formative years in Venezuela, 1952-1962 before immigrating to the east coast of Canada in 1963.
After moving to Alberta as a teenager in 1966, Margriet studied textile and design at Olds College from 1974-76 and received her diploma from there. She studied weaving at the Banff Centre for the Arts in the summers of 1982 and 1983, these were three week long intensive courses. Here she honed her knowledge of colour theory and an appreciation for texture.
She established her own needlework business, The Essamplaire, in 1989 which specializes in reproductions of museum samplers from Europe and North America, as well as teaching workshops. The majority of the workshops are in the US for museums and various sampler guilds. The people attending the workshops come away with the knowledge of working an accurate reproduction including all the various stitches used.
Margriet's involvement in the arts has extended into mixed media painting. She has been taking workshops and courses over the past number of years at Series, offered by the Red Deer College and also at Vancouver Island Workshops. Her interests primarily lie in abstraction and the play that comes with building layer by layer of paint and joining texture and objects to create visual dynamics.
