About Kesra Hoffman
Kesra Hoffman, a native of Middletown, Maryland, has been painting landscapes of her home and travels since 1996. Growing up in an area rich with farmland and forests cultivated within her a passion for the natural world. She found a desire to share her excitement for the beauty around her as a child, traveling with her parents.
Kesra grew up on a wooded farm on South Mountain, in Maryland, where her studio continues to be. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art in 1994 from Principia College in Illinois, and as a post-graduate, painted and studied art in Europe for two months with other Principia art majors. After touring with cast E’95 of Up with People, she returned to Middletown to paint landscapes. Kesra exhibits her work in galleries, coffee shops, restaurants and at fine art festivals.
Kesra is a full time artist, painting landscapes and wall murals, binding books, and teaching classes, workshops and private art lessons. She travels worldwide to take painting workshops to keep her passion fresh, and incorporates these experiences into her artistic expression. Currently, she and her partner, Marc, are continuing renovation on a little old farm house and gardening on a few recently purchased acres.
