Douglas Hofmann expertly combines his own methods of painting with the techniques of the old masters which Douglas learned from Joseph Sheppard at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where he received his bachelor of fine arts degree.
The beautiful aura of light and atmosphere found in great Baroque paintings pervades the works of Hofmann. Douglas Hofmann gives meticulous attention to detail, and creates harmonious compositions with superbly balanced colours and shapes.

Douglas has received numerous awards for his works, including first prize at the Peale Museum in Baltimore, 1970; 'Best Paintings in the Traditional Manner', at the Baltimore Museum, 1971; 'Best in Show' at the Washington County Museum, Hagerstown, Md, 1972; 'Best in Show' at the Center Club in Baltimore, 1973 and 1978.
