Madeline Hoffman's artwork is on display alongside paintings from KAA's permanent collection in June.

Growing up in Indiana Madeline spent many hours playing in the grassy fields near her home. During that time she developed a love for nature and wildlife.

A self-taught artist, Madeline uses watercolor and oil to create floral, landscape and wildlife paintings. She refers to photos taken from one of her many gardens when creating her paintings. Thoughtful observation, an artful eye and years of honing her craft allow Madeline to bring her subjects to life. She is most known for her lush and oversized paintings of gladiolus, irises, tulips, peonies and other favorites from the garden. Her love of nature is abundantly evident when viewing her art.

Madeline has been juried into many fine art exhibits, fairs and competitions within a five state area and won numerous awards. Her work is in private and corporate collections. She is also a regular volunteer at the Kokomo Art Center.

KAA permanent collection art by Leota Loop, Douglas David, Frank V. Dudley, Paul Conner and Lydia Hankemeier is included in the exhibit.

The Kokomo Art Center is located at 525 West Ricketts Street (on the grounds of Highland Park). Exhibit hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays 1-4 pm. Stop in and be inspired!
