My name is Isaiah William Hoppe. My freshman year in high school, I was presented with an opportunity to take a correspondence art course. Wanting to have the highest quality training possible, I was pleased to learn that Charles Schultz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip, took this course as well. When it came time to choose a college, Pensacola Christian College was the best option because of its affordability and because of its proven high-quality art program. PCC’s art department has given me a deeper understanding of art, both technically and spiritually, but it is just the beginning.
When I make a painting, the goal is to produce a positive emotional response in the viewer. The goal is to deliver a work to a client that will give them positive emotions every time they pass by it or glance at it. Whether they realize its positive influence on them or not, they will have a positive message hanging on their wall for years. In order to get my positive message across more quickly, I often use people as the subject of my paintings. People relate with people. As I enter the professional sphere of art, my goal is to add positive value to the world through my art.

Camping and Plein Air in 2020
Back in 2020, I had a lot of fun camping just below Leidi Peak and working on some plein air paintings. Painting from life out in God's creation is so much fun!
