Her works focus around a deeply intimate and spiritual theme, celebrating the presence of peace, joy and hope. Logan’s highly textural compositions include landscapes, nature studies, architectural studies, figure studies, portraits and still lifes. Logan’s work shown in Europe includes international group exhibitions and a one-woman show at Budapest’s National Opera House. Since returning to the Unites States, she won awards for her work and taught in galleries, schools and art organizations.
