Ann S. Hoffenberg is a freelance botanical and biological illustrator/artist and a teacher of the biological sciences, with training in both art and biology. Earning her Certificate in Botanical Illustration from the New York Botanical Garden in 2002 helped her to blend her interest in both of these fields. An appreciation for form, color and esthetics, and a deep and abiding fascination with natural science has made botanical illustration the perfect pursuit. She hopes that those viewing her work will feel it does justice to the beauty of the subject and that it reveals something new and intriguing.
Ann lives and works in New Jersey, teaching General Biology at Rider University, and drawing and painting as much as time will allow. A member of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators and the American Society of Botanical Artists, she works in watercolor, colored pencil, graphite, gouache, and pen and ink. Her work has been exhibited in three ASBA juried exhibitions as well as other group exhibitions in the Greater Metropolitan area, Pennsylvania and California. Her work is in both private and public collections and she has contributed drawings to a handbook on veterinary pathology and a book on seedling ecology and evolution.
