JOAN HOFFMANN paints impressionistic oil and watercolor landscapes en plein air. She is dedicated to painting, teaching and preserving the wild landscapes that she explores.

Her impressionistic oils evoke a poetic sense of place. She paints, teaches painting and works to preserve the nature of our great American commons: public lands, National Parks and wilderness areas.

In art is the meaning of experience. Our free spirit and our public lands go hand in hand.
