Deb Hoeffner

Phone: 215-766-9911Website: www.debhoeffner.com

Over the years, deb’s work has evolved from a very tight realism to a more fluid, painterly expression. The title artist/illustrator suits her. With degrees and experience in art education, fine arts, and graphic design and an added passion for art history, deb has the experience, knowledge, and curiosity to constantly create new solutions to visual challenges.

Her drawings are realistic and fluid with a wide depth of tones. Working in the traditional mediums of watercolor, pastel, oil and pencil with a dash of digital, deb’s work reflects a touch of the old masters combined with her own vision. “My work has always been about expression and layers. Layers of thought, layers of pencil and eventually layers of glazed colors. The result is what I call “soft realism” which leaves room for the imagination. The brushstrokes and pencil strokes are a part of the image rather than masked.”

“Part of my expression is to say that even in this digital world, the human touch of a hand can create magic.” During the 30 years of her illustration career, deb’s work has been published in print, web and advertising worldwide.
