Based in Saskatchewan, Michaela Hoppe’s work is motivated by ‘the small hidden places that tell secrets and stories left by people long gone’ and the intrinsic charm of the surrounding prairies. She has been painting since high school, finding inspiration from the Saskatchewan landscape and her travels abroad.
Beginning with a photograph, Hoppe’s paintings are inspired by the light, colour, or line of an image. Lounging figures steeped in thought appear among lush foliage and rolling plains in her dreamy and novelesque paintings.
Her work is represented in galleries across Canada.
