Hood Canal Resort is featuring art by artist Tove Koch. Tove was born and raised in the Swedish countryside on the west coast in a large, artistic family. She has loved expressing herself creatively since she was a young child and loves sharing her talent with the world today.

One of her biggest inspirations is and has always been her love and fascination for the natural world. As a kid she could spend hours exploring the backyard, forest and the beach. Today is no different, except the Pacific Northwest is now her main playground. Another area of interest is the mystical and spiritual. Beyond what meets the eye, she sees and feels something more – a higher force, an energy, a higher purpose – something that needs to be honored, admired, and protected. She loves intertwining the physical and spiritual in her art, often with a playful tone.

Her lower and higher education always centered around art and photography. In addition to the common educational requirements, Sweden allows students to emphasize arts and crafts, fine arts and photography into their curriculum – an opportunity she gladly took. Her education provided her a valuable base that has allowed her to evolve and create her own unique style of expression.
