Alexie Hoffman

I live in Seattle, Washington but was born and raised on the front range of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. I've always been drawn to sweeping mountain landscapes, big skies and summer thunderstorms. I love my new PNW roots and deep Colorado roots. My deepest sense of home comes from being with friends and family, and experiencing the world together (whether we're at an old haunt, exploring a new place, or end up somewhere entirely unexpected).

When I'm not making art, I love to be outside. Hiking, running, beach volleyball, skiing, bouldering, playing fetch with my dog (Luna), yoga and gardening are all at the top of my list. I also love to read, bake and see live music.

In the past decade, I've fallen in love with wood burning. I use a wood burning tool on birch panels with graphite, gouache or acrylic paint, walnut ink and natural stains. Not only does wood burning make my apartment smell like a campfire, but it also feels raw and rooted to me. I also like to explore detailed or loose pen + ink illustrations, and watercolor. This year, I've been trying my hand at digital illustration (via Procreate) and am finding a lot of freedom in how powerful and portable Procrete is.

I would love for my art to feel familiar, mysterious & intriguing (like a distant memory, or dream; favorite scent, or place). I hope my work inspires folks to appreciate the world around them, and encourages them to tell their stories and create. I believe that everyone is creative in their own right -- and that the truest connections in creating come out of vulnerable, shared and imperfect stories.
 
In the future I dream of: making album art for bands I love, illustrating a book (or a few!) & potentially being an art therapist.
