A painter and sculptress. Her paintings offer the viewer a detailed glimpse into her inner landscapes – imagery that has been inspired by expanded states of consciousness: the realms of the imagination, meditation, shamanic journeys and the dream state.

“The visionary artist makes visible the more subtle and intuitive states ofour existence and creates maps and symbols reflecting consciousness.My work is an attempt to show spirit as the universal force which unifies us beyond the confines of cultural and religious differences. By accepting the interdependency of all life and our universal interconnectedness we have a chance to heal and transform the planet’s general state of woundedness.In using art as a tool for transformation, we have the opportunity to createa reality as beautiful, healthy and strong as our imagination permits.”

Martina Hoffmann, has exhibited her work and spoken on behalf of visionaryart and culture internationally. Together with her husband the AmericanFantastic Realist, Robert Venosa, she teaches visionary painting workshops.
