About the Author

Mark Hoffmann

Howdy-My Name is Mark Hoffmann, but some call me Hoffmann or Hoffy. I am an award winning illustrator, painter, author and professor. I was raised in Minnesota (Go Snow!) and earned my BFA from Rhode Island School of Design, and MFA from UMass- Dartmouth. I hope to create fun through reading and learning with my books. As an avid believer in fact, I hope to impart some wisdom through my books while entertaining through the humorous narrative form. I hope you like them and walk away a little more knowledgable. When I'm not creating or teaching, I spend my free time looking for old junk and wood boxes at antique fairs. (Go Old Stuff!) I currently live in New Hampshire with my wife and son.My work can be seen at www.studiohoffmann.com and www.instagram.com/studiohoffmann.
