Becky Hoyle Lukow has had a life long infatuation with art. Initially her father, artist Glen Hoyle inspired her with his love for nature and his creative genius. Recognizing her talent he encouraged Becky to to explore different art mediums. She worked in acrylic, oil, and graphite / charcoal, however, colored pencils have become her medium of choice.
The unique way in which Becky works with pencil allows the viewers to see a smooth flowing of rich color and to generate incredible detail for each image. Her hope is to have the viewer trapped in an illusion of realism, feeling the emotion of the image. Becky works in an assortment of sizes and formats to enhance the mood of each individual image.
"I consider it a great blessing to be able to capture life and so inspire others to see the power and beauty of the animals in nature and to help the awareness of wildlife."
I was born and lived many of my childhood years in Texas. In a loving family of eight, One of my true loves was spending countless hours riding horses in the pastures with my sister, Linda, encountering all sorts of creatures. There was always an adventure to be had.
Later our family moved to the Enchanting State of New Mexico, along with a whole new set of adventures; the mountains, walking in the mesas and going out for a drive to see the beauty of nature. Here, I met the love of my life and we raised four wonderful children, and have three sweet grandchildren. I am truly blessed to have the support of all my wonderful family and friends, especially my husband Dale.
