Nancy Hoke • Village Galleries Maui


“Nancy Hoke captures the bright moments of life on Maui in her own unique style. Her action and fun filled paintings always bring us a smile.”

A sense of excitement and a feeling of rhythm are experienced when viewing the artwork of Nancy Hoke. There is an underlying complexity in her work, yet a world of joy and silliness is also observed with clear-eyed honesty and imagination.

Nancy was born in Connecticut and spent her earliest years in the Republic of Panama where she was infused with her tropical palette. She also incorporates the Afro/West Indian culture and her vivid memories into many of her paintings. She attended Beloit College in Wisconsin and the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. Nancy earned her BA with concentrations in Art and Anthropology from the University of Maryland. Nancy found her way to Maui in the early 1980’s and resides in Lahaina.
