Hope Spragg is an artist, mother and preschool teacher in Iowa City, Iowa. She graduated from The University of Iowa in 1999 with a bachelor's in art education. She spent a decade in Asheville, North Carolina, producing, directing and acting in local theatre and having babies (2). Her mother and sister's family still live there, securing its place in her heart as a second home.
Her art is inspired by the natural world- landscapes and animals, as well as the internal world of thought, spirit and mood. Color is often the language connecting the inner and outer visual relationship, creating hyper-color abstractions. Hope works with acrylic paints, encaustic wax and soft pastel. She is thrilled to work in a studio space at PS1, an artist-led community art space.
