Deb Hoeffner describes her unique style of "soft realism" as a layering of thought, paint, and possibilities. She specializes in capturing the spirit behind the eyes of her subjects, both animals and humans. In Silent Swoop, her illustrations tell the story of the special bond between Coal and Walter. A true animal lover, Deb shares her studio in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, with her collie, Isabelle Patch, and the deer, fox, crows, hawks, and other birds and animals that inhabit her backyard. An award-winning artist and book illustrator, Deb features her work at www.debhoeffner.com.
