the ten years since he burst onto the art scene,
award-winning artist Collin Bogle has created a national
following for his strikingly realistic wildlife and floral images.
The son of a famous American artist, Collin learned the
concepts of technique, composition and design from his
father, later refining his skills and setting out on his own
artistic path. His remarkable ability to capture detail and
to master the use of light in natural settings became
hallmarks of his work.
"Light plays a major role in my work," states the artist.
"An abundance of light and shadows creates a playground
for me, and allows a painting to take on a life of its own.
The artist's paintings are not limited to any one subject or
medium and demonstrate great flexibility and technical
versatility. Bogle uses pastels, colored pencils, watercolor and acrylics,
whatever it takes to create
the superbly-lighted, realistic and almost photographic images that have
gained him an impressive
reputation and following.
Collin Bogle has exhibited in art shows through the United States and his
originals are on display
in prominent galleries nationwide.
