Jennifer L. Hoffman’s oils and pastels often evoke a quiet meditation on the land that surrounds her home. Born and raised in eastern Pennsylvania, her earliest artistic inquiries were attempts to capture the landscape and birds around her. She was enamored of the Wyeth family from an early age, and later, when she discovered the poetic expression of artists like Bruce Crane, John Henry Twachtman, John Abbott MacNeill Whistler, and Charles Warren Eaton, she felt an instant kinship. Her inspiration still comes from the nature and wildlife around her home, now in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Hoffman gathers her ideas on location, then uses those studies to create larger work in the studio. Hoffman has twice won the George Inness Jr. Memorial Award for Pastel at the Salmagundi Club’s annual open juried exhibition, and in 2018 was awarded Best Body of Work at both Plein Air for the Park (Grand Teton National Park) and Yellowstone Plein Air. Her work has been exhibited at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Bennington Center for the Arts, the National Arts Club, and is in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Wildlife Art. Her work is represented by Turner Fine Art in Jackson, Wyoming and on her website, www.jlhoffmanfineart.com.
