George began painting very early and was able to participate in the vibrant arctic culture of the Abington, Pennsylvania region. The family owned a farm in Bucks County, home of the Pennsylvania impressionists, and George became heavily influenced by their fine academic training coupled with a love of the prosaic landscape. Another early local influence was the ‘Brandywine tradition’, the illustrative work of Howard Pyle and the Wyeths.

George Van Hook thinks of his paintings as primarily a visual response to the selected environment, be it landscape, figure or still life. “I want the color to be beautiful and the drawing firm and secure.” he says. “The paintings are a marriage of external and internal forces – what emerges on the canvas should be a reflection of both the beauty of the world and the artist’s most inner response.”
