abstract landscape, animal paintings and drawings,
visual investigations into the psyche and art by commission





Hope Spragg is an artist and mother in Iowa City, Iowa. Her art is inspired by the natural world- landscapes and animals, as well as the internal world of thought, spirit and mood. She works in oil and acrylic paint, oil pastel and colored pencil. 

In non-Covid times, she is a preschool teacher at Preucil Preschool, where she studies the beauty of children’s valient imagination and art making. She graduated from The University of Iowa in 1999 with a BA in art education. She works out of her studio at Public Space One, an artist-led community art space. Currently, her work is printed on four street pole banners on Washington Street in downtown Iowa City and one painted bench in the pedestrian mall, both thanks to the Iowa City Downtown Districts art initiatives. She is a proud member of Art Office, a local, online group of artists who work together combining the activity of an office workplace with the autonomy of an art studio.
