About Me

My name is Mark Hoffmann, but some folks know me as "Hoffmann" or "Hoffy". I am currently working as a children's book author/illustrator, editorial illustrator, and fine artist. I am also a professor at Montserrat College of Art in the illustration department.

After growing up in Minnesota, I moved to the east coast for college and remained here ever since. I currently live in southern New Hampshire with a lovely wife, a goofy son, two crazy kitties and a lazy dog.

Thanks for taking a look at my work.
