Keith Hoffman was born in Tarrytown, New York, and grew up in the New York City area. From childhood, a family that included several commerical artists and illustrators encouraged his interest in art. He concentrated mostly on the medium of watercolor. When his work first appeared in an art exhibit back in the late sixties, he was approached by several galleries interested in representing his work.
He began teaching painting classes, demonstrating for art organizations, university and high school art programs, joined the prestigious Salmagundi Club, and became the President of Long Island's largest art organization, the Art League of Nassau County.
He later relocated to Vermont, which offered a bountiful supply of the rural suject matter that has been and contiues to be his greatest inspiration. A reputation as one of Vermont's finest watercolorists developed quickly, and over time he began to add both oil and acrylic to his media. More recently, he has relocated again, to the Brandywine Valley area of Pennsylvania. He now works as an instructor in painting at the Center for the Creative Arts in Yorklyn, Delaware and the Academy of Lifelong Learning in Wilmington, Delaware.
He has had many one-man exhibitions, most prominently perhaps those held at the Southern Vermont Arts Center in Manchester, Vermont, and has won many prizes and commissions for his work. His work can be seen at many galleries and venues throughout the eastern seaboard.
Mr. Hoffman's other interests include the study of the German language and a great variety of music, including opera, oratorio and folk music.
