Grace Hoff was born in the Northwest Territories of Yellowknife, Canada. At the age of four, Hoff and her family immigrated to a southern California artistic beach town of Laguna Beach. In Hoff’s youth, the community of artists that surrounded her as well as her father, a renowned goldsmith, inspired her.
When Hoff was a young woman and the wild lust of adventure prompted her to travel the world, she did. From her travels through India, Asia and Mexico, Hoff absorbed the art and culture that she experienced first hand.
That experience lit her artistic flame that has pushed her to pursue a life and career as an artist today. Hoff now resides and creates her art between Hawaii and Oregon.
The medium of paper has been an inspiration of graces since 1986. from those early years until now, she has been on a journey that has refined itself through her and into the beautiful creations you see today.
For Hoff, paper is a forgiving medium that renders itself into soft shapes and forms. Her artistic flair transforms the papers appearance into the luster of metal and of the texture of Raku. With her passion for exploring texture and color, she is creating harmonious illusions that brings her unique wall hangings to life.
The pieces currently being created are assemblages of paper, various natural items: glass, inks, paints, and composition leafing.
