A graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, Richard Chandler Hoff is a nationally recognized artist working exclusively in graphite pencil on paper. Hoff illustrates life in America during the 1940s relying on extensive research to accurately depict that decade. At the age of twenty-eight Hoff’s work was reviewed in the French art magazine La Revue Moderne. In 1987 Richard was awarded Second Place in the American Artist Magazine Golden Anniversary Traveling Exhibition. Only 68 artists were chosen from 13,000 entries. Hoff’s work has been included in the prestigious Pennsylvania Art of the State competition for seven years and he is represented in public, corporate and private collections including the Butler Institute of American Art and MBNA Bank (now Bank of America). In 2015 he was awarded Master Pencil Artist (signature) Status by the Pencil Arts Society of Canada. He is a winner of the Williams Prize in Drawing (Juror’s Choice Award) for 2016. Hoff’s drawings have been featured in American Artist Magazine and the premier issue of Drawing Magazine.
Richard currently resides in Felton, Pennsylvania with his wife Joanne and Ginger, the Studio Cat.
