"My sense of color and experience in textile design enable me to do what I love: bring a room together with warmth and charm.


Nancy Hofer Textile Designer

When in college pursuing my fine arts degree, I always loved the tactile nature of the oil paints on the canvas. The fascination carries on today as I incorporate traditional painting with computer techniques to produce my work.

These designs suggest a handmade quality reflecting my influences:

  • Nature's color and beauty.
  • Traditional craftsmanship: tile work, marquetry, ikat.
  • Today's modern sensibility to preserve the environment, while incorporating natural elements.

      Artist, designer, colorist in home furnishings and menswear. Designer for both textiles and  products for bedding and other home accessories for major retailers.  Experienced at trend research and product development.
