thank you for visiting

welcome

I am a German-Canadian abstract artist. My family and I moved to Victoria, BC from Hamburg in 2004. Victoria is where I maintain my art practice and started my art studies in 2005. 
 
Geometric shapes inherent in architecture provide the basis of my compositional language. My latest series of paintings involves both organic and geometric forms, where aspects of one form concentration informs the other.

Ira Hoffecker’s paintings speak for themselves. Confident and decisive, they are both decorative and contemplative. For now, I'll leave it to you to see why so many people find them deeply satisfying...
Robert Amos, The Times Colonist
A fantastic colourist - her canvases glow with a mix of primary and pastel tones - Hoffecker manages the tricky feat of being both intellectual and playful via paintings that combine vivid colour fields with decorative patches and textures.
Boulevard Magazine
Softly blended images of glowing, anomalous leaf forms, provide touchstones of comfort in an otherwise bewildering maze of human activity and experience.
