Paintings by Joyce Hoffman

Joyce is a self-taught artist whom is often inspired by her dreams…by the humorous parallels she “sees” between animals and still life, along with her concern for the ecology of the earth. After winning competitions for wine labels and T-shirt designs in the Bay Area, she decided to return to college to study art. Joyce earned multiple degrees from Sonoma State University as well as Dominican University in the areas of Studio Art, Film History and Art History. Joyce has always considered her art “just a hobby” so this her first show. Please come show her art some love and join us for her art reception January 10th 5:30 – 7:30 PM! 

Because creating portraits is her favorite art subject, she invites anyone who would like their portrait done in colored watercolor pencils to contact her at joyceasmyself@gmail.com or by calling her at 530-477-2266.
