I lecture, write and educate on the History of American Landscape Painting: for booking email

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.

Joan Hoffmann recently spoke at "Women in Conservation", sponsored by the Sierra Club Upper Valley Group. You can see here.

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