Ariana Hoffman has been working in the field of the Decorative Arts for the past 20 years.   What was considered genuine natural ability, curiosity and a form of expression has been turned into a full fledged decorative painting company.  After graduating from Syracuse University in ’94 she began a seven year collaboration with a major nationwide furniture company redefining their antique and old world paint finishes.  Thru that experience this self taught artist was able to begin her own solo chapter starting The Decorative Artist.  That company has now evolved into AH &CO. - combining the talents of many additional artists, woodworkers, and fine finishers.

The privilege of traveling around the country for her art as well as developing the continued relationships with her local clientele give Ariana a well rounded view of what is happening in the world of Decorative Painting.  Her one of a kind artistry can be seen in multiple national publications, commercial offices, show houses, boutiques and private homes.  Highlights of this in the past year include the commission of several private celebrity dwellings as well as a major oral care company headquarters.  On the horizon is a fourteen room contemporary oasis in Royal Palm Beach, Florida as well as production of a line of made to order custom ceiling medallions.

Ariana and her team value the necessity of the right color tone,  finish choice and professional execution in every project.  Custom concepts are developed for the client in order to obtain the highest level of artistry.  The appreciation of this is seen by her discerning and varied clientele’s trust and consistent continued business.  The artist client relationship is what inspires all of these great works of art.
