Linda Hoffman studied art, masks and theater in Paris, France. She received a fine arts degree from Bryn Mawr College and then was awarded a Watson Traveling Fellowship to train with a Noh Theater actor in Kyoto, Japan. Upon returning to the United States and inspired by the poetry and beauty of traditional Japanese arts, Hoffman began an exploration of narrative sculpture incorporating language, natural fibers, wood, stone and found objects.
Hoffman's artwork includes indoor and outdoor sculpture, public installations, digital prints and the Fine Art letterpress book, Winter Air. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Boston Public Library, the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, the Hechinger Tool Collection, Washington D.C., Harvard University and the Acton Arboretum in Acton, MA.
Hoffman is the fruit grower at Old Frog Pond Farm in Harvard. Visitors in the fall can pick organically certified apples and raspberries and take a tour of outdoor sculpture around the pond and through the woods. She is writing a memoir about bringing back the abandoned orchard at Old Frog Pond Farm.
