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 works mainly in gouache, acrylic and, most recently, charcoal. Her paintings and drawings portray the dramatic moods and cohesive shapes of the water, landforms and skies reflective of her worldwide travels. “I find a thrill in the constantly changing dialogue between light and shadow in nature. For me, painting is about capturing that excitement and translating it onto paper.”
Kesra is a full time artist, painting landscapes and wall murals, binding books, and teaching classes, workshops and private art lessons.
