Find Ed's work on Facebook at Hofer Studios.
Enjoying the beautiful surroundings of his relaxed mountain life on Lake Glenville, Ed now works from his home studio. Using his background in design, his creations are unique in style and bold in color.
Ed ran his Florida studio for over 25 years where he did illustrations, design work and creative direction for corporations worldwide. During his career, his work won over 50 Addy Awards, including the prestigious Charlie Award. Saying goodbye to the fast-paced commercial world and Florida, he and his wife, Diana, moved to their home in Western North Carolina.
If Ed is not in his studio painting, he and Diana are off exploring the roads on his Harley trike to find hidden waterfalls, seeing scenic mountain roads and wildlife that help inspire future paintings.
It is important to give back whenever possible.....since living in North Carolina, his donated artwork has helped raise thousands for local and national animal rescues and charities. In Florida, he spent many years donating his time managing an elite softball team until his players all received college scholarships.
