Ian de Hoog is a Canadian watercolourist and instructor living out on the West Coast of British Columbia. Ian developed an early visual interest in the medium due to the works of Franklin Carmichael and Toni Onley. However, it was during a brief stint studying architecture that a physical love of painting manifested. While primarily self-taught, Ian is very grateful for the recent opportunities he has had to study with Alvaro Castagnet, Thomas Schaller and Herman Pekel.

Ian’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions and are included in a growing number of private collections around the world.
