Oh hi, fancy seeing you here!
Allow me to introduce myself…
My name is Kellie Hoffmann and I am the artist and voice of K H Artworks.
I was born in Jamestown but spent the majority of my upbringing in the small country town of Loxton, South Australia. For as long as I can remember I have always loved making art, starting off with a more crafty approach, from plasticine models to cutting up old greeting cards to create new ones. Throughout my schooling years I developed a keen interest in drawing, refining my skills towards realism, however, it was only after completing high school that I discovered my love for painting and this passion has guided my practice ever since.
I completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts in early 2018 at the University of South Australia which included a semester abroad at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Canada. Throughout my studies I played with multiple styles of painting, but found that I was always drawn back to realism. I’ve come to realise that it’s the finest details that draw me in most, in both painting and life in general.
Since a child I have always been a huge animal lover and the majority of my commissioned works are for pet portraits. My love for animals is also reflected in my personal works as well, and recently I have been moving towards addressing environmental issues and the impacts on the wildlife.
