Douglas Hoover is a self-taught artist based in central North Carolina whose work has been shown and collected throughout the southeastern United States.
He attributes his talent and exposure to artistic creativity to the support and encouragement of his family, friends and teachers. During his formative years in Jr High and Senior High School, he entered his artworks in many juried exhibitions such as the Scholastic Art Awards and received many Gold Key awards and Certificates of Merit. He was awarded the opportunity to exhibit in the fourth annual Congressional Arts Competition in Washington, DC, representing the 6th District of North Carolina with the Honorable Howard Coble.
Having studied Creative Design and Graphic Arts in college, Douglas pursued a successful career as an illustrator and art director for the advertising industry. Not losing sight of his artistic passion, he continues to study painting and embraces new techniques and challenges that he believes will help further his skill as an artist.
"My passion is observing and capturing momentary impressions of life around me. These moments are what makes up the perception of my existence. Infusing these concepts with elements of impressionistic style, good composition and brilliant color, allows me to capture the feeling of the moment. I want to paint what I see, but more than that, I want feeling and truth to become the subject of my paintings."
