Kathy Hofmann

These quiet, intimate paintings recall the work of the Barbizon
painters and Luminist style of the Hudson River School. Inspired
by the rural surroundings of her childhood, Kathy Hofmann
paints with an intense focus and lifelong passion for the family
farmstead. While soaking in the atmospheric haze of the sunlit
fields surrounding her, the artist, in quest of her next composition,
feels the friendly and familiar gaze of cows following her
every move.
Hofmann’s work glorifies the Wisconsin landscape while simultaneously
and subtly evoking a eulogy to such a seemingly idyllic
landscape under threat of modernization. With a Master of
Fine Art degree in painting from the University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee, Hofmann’s exquisite works of art have earned her
many awards and high praise.
