Recently returned from Hertford, NC where I installed a large mural in the Hoffer River House. The mural is the creative inspiration of owners Mamie and Ken Hoffer and features Thomas Jefferson walking in a conservatory with a woman friend. The Hoffer River House is a beautiful event venue created by this delightful couple for charitable functions. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the venue offers a performance stage, a ballroom, upper and lower kitchen areas, gorgeous staircase, patios, dining areas with many wonderful function areas.
The Hoffers admire Thomas Jefferson as a great historical person. The mosaic mural features Thomas Jefferson walking in a conservatory garden with a rendition of his woman friend, Marie Cosway, with flowers, birds, a large birdhouse, plants and foliage. The mural is approximately 9ft tall by 19 feet wide and is located on a wall in the pool house.
It was a pleasure to work with this generous and civic minded couple. The Hoffer River House is an incredibly beautiful venue situated along the river delta, with a private pier, osprey nest, cypress trees and all manner of birds and wildlife set around a pristine and wonderfully cultivated formal garden.
