Eva Hoven

Eva was born in Norway and has lived in various countries.  She has been living in Houston for the last 5 years.  She has worked as an artist for over 15 years and studied at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Art Houston.

Eva's work creates narratives by exploring a theme through a chosen word.  Some themes are derived from current events, others from her life experiences and state of mind.  Recently, Eva has begun experimenting with oil sticks as a new media.  These images reflect emotions, seasons and life events.

From Eva, "To paint is a good way of expressing feelings and emotions.   A single word can become very powerful and meaningfull when combined with colors, patterns and symbols.  It can create different emotions for different people.  This is what I search for in my pieces, to excite the viewer using words, colors and symbols."


Eva's work can be viewed in person every Secon Saturday at Silver Street Studios.
