Kate Hoffman Art

Award-winning Southern California artist Kate Hoffman has been painting for more than 30 years.  She developed her distinctive style and sense of color at the Art Students League in New York and at the Instituto Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.  She is known for her paintings of horses and other animals as well as the blue and green water of her seascapes. Her images are simple and loose and surfaces are often rubbed to suggest the dimension of the canvas, paper and gesso underneath.  Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums, including the Museum of Fine Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and can be seen in the permanent collection of the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa as well as corporate and private collections.
