2017 D’Art for Art Featured Artist


Mary Hramiec Hoffman
Mary Hramiec Hoffman was always drawing as a child growing up in the beautiful Petoskey and Harbor Springs resort area surrounding Lake Michigan’s Little Traverse Bay. Encouraged by her artistically inclined parents, her drawing ability took on a life of its own. She was enrolled in children’s art classes at North Central Michigan College and the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Petoskey at a young age.

Mary continued to develop her talent and obtained her degrees in fine art from St. Thomas Aquinas College and Kendall College of Art and Design. After graduating Mary held the position of creative director at an advertising agency. In addition to the beauty of the Petoskey and Harbor Springs area, her inspirations emanate from memories reflecting experiences and sights from traveling the United States with her family of ten- 2 parents, 8 kids and the family dog in one of America’s first motor-homes – her father expertly fashioned it out of a GM delivery truck.

Mary is known for the delicate sensitivity portrayed in her oil scenes of northern Michigan. Her oil paintings reflect an appreciation of the fauvist and impressionist movements- she creates a pulsating vibrancy on the surface of her canvases. Behind the spontaneous brushwork and loosely applied colors in her paintings there is control that brings the elements into a structured whole. A series that has an impressive following is her “Happy” collection. These paintings commonly have polka dot skies and whimsical elements in them.

She still resides in the same scenic resort area in which she grew up, with her husband and business partner Mark Hoffman and their four children.
