About the Artist

(1912-2008)  Hoff was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In 1938 she moved to Chicago and began studying at the School of the Art Institute and graduated in 1944. She moved to New York in the early 1960's. 

Since the 1970's her greatest artistic influence was Synthetic Cubism. Hoff worked in many media, including woodblock prints, collages, illustrations, costume designs and murals. Her most popular works; however, are canvas collages, created by painting canvas with acrylic and watercolor, then cutting it and piecing it together in a collage. She most commonly worked with geometric shapes, showing influences of Matisse, but she occasionally includes figurative shapes in her works. 

In 1997 Hoff was included in an invitational group exhibition at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery in New York. She has also exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Wildenstein Gallery of Paris and the Bancock Gallery as well as the Betty Parsons Gallery both in New York.

Hoff's artwork is also included in the collections of major museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Museum of America Art, both in Washington, DC; as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Art Institute of Chicago. 

Hoff shared her artistic knowledge and inspirations with other art students, teaching at numerous schools and offering many workshops on her expertise. She traveled abroad visiting places such as Lebanon and Uganda, to expand her cultural knowledge.
