SOFT REALISM IN PORTRAITS, PAINTINGS, AND DRAWINGS
Deb Hoeffner describes her unique style of soft realism as a layering of thought, paint and possibilities. Her work has been widely published over a long professional career. Working in oils, graphite, and watercolors, she specializes in expressive portraits. The eyes in her art capture the spark of life. Her sensitive drawings have been featured in the North Light book series Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing and in Art Journey Animals, a best of animal artwork compendium.
Deb has illustrated a number of award-winning children’s books including All You Want and Then Some, Lucky: The Tale of a Tree, and Forever Home: Tales of Four Lucky Dogs. An illustration created for the children’s book Silent Swoop: An Owl, an Egg, and a Warm Pocket, is now in the collection of the Mazza Museum of Picture Book Art. Her latest book, Trucker: The True Story of a Hero Colt, is a tribute to the work of equine rescue organizations, bringing to the page a very special little hero and the successful rescue of a large herd of starving horses.
Deb’s paintings and drawings have been exhibited in many of the galleries and art exhibitions of this rich artistic area. Her studio in Doylestown is open to the public by appointment. She is available for portraits and commissions.
