Brenda Hofreiter
Winter Park, Florida


THIS AWARD-WINNING OIL PAINTER is noted for her clean use of color, powerful compositions and her ability to capture the scene before her with an authentic sense of place. Painting almost exclusively out of doors, or ‘en plein air’, she paints the wetlands and tidal marshes of her native Florida as well as vanishing natural areas of the southern US. A passionate conservationist, she has been selected by jury as Artist-In-Residence at State parks in Florida, South Carolina and
Georgia and her artwork is included in their permanent collections.

Brenda’s oil paintings have been juried into numerous international, national, and regional competitions and are included in corporate and museum collections. As a mark of her standing among her peers, Brenda has been awarded Signature membership in International Plein Air Painters, the American Impressionist Society, and Plein Air Florida. Brenda is quoted as saying: " “Painting allows me to express my intimate connection to the land. My paintings are windows into the world that share the beauty, peace and serenity I find in the timeless beauty of nature. It is my hope that they inspire a desire to conserve these vanishing places.”
