Brandi Hofer was born in Saskatchewan in 1986 and has a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax.

Hofer’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions in Alberta, Nova Scotia, and Quebec. She has been involved in the Saskatchewan Craft Council, the Edmonton Arts Council, and CARFAC Saskatchewan. In 2011, she participated in residencies at Red Deer College and the Marnay Art Centre, in Paris France.
