Jeffrey Hoff

Growing up in Devils Lake, North Dakota, right in the central flyway of many different waterfowl species, has allowed Jeff to study firsthand the different habits and habitats of his favorite wildlife subjects.

In 1997, coaxed by a friend to enter his very first duck stamp competition, Jeff submitted a painting of a pair of hooded mergansers in the Nevada State Duck Stamp contest. His entry placed 5th out of 67 entries from across the country, inspiring him to pursue and develop his skills as an artist. With continued hard work, in 2002 he won the Nevada State Duck Stamp competition beating out 35 entries from across the nation with his painting of a pair of Cinnamon Teal. Since then, Jeff has won state duck stamp contests in Oklahoma, Ohio and Iowa.

With his earlier works primarily focusing on waterfowl, Jeff has taken on a new focus with songbirds. “Songbirds are always fun subjects to paint. They are such subtle little creatures with a big voice. Whether I’m trekking through the willows gathering reference of a moose or just sitting on my deck relaxing, they always seem to be around making their presence known”. Other subjects that Jeff enjoys painting include grizzly bear, moose, elk, bison, game birds, birds of prey and man’s best friend – dogs. Jeff’s medium of choice is acrylic, blending a touch of airbrush.

Jeff’s love for wildlife and nature are the two driving forces that continue to inspire and push him to follow his passion to paint. Jeff resides in Jamestown, ND.
