you wake to the sound of the water hitting the shore
the sun slowly rises above the horizon
birds sing their morning songs
the smell of burnt wood and hotdogs still clings to your hair and clothes
in the bottom of your sleeping bag the sand still scratches on your feet
the scent of fresh morning dew lingers in the air
drops of water are still sitting clinging onto the roof of your tent
you watch them slowly bead off
you take pleasure in knowing that there is no other place to be but right here 
and slowly stretch your arms above your head and take in a deep breath


the laughter from the evening before rings in your ears
you recall the hot sweet sticky goo of the burnt marshmallow that you anxiously stuffed into your mouth
the warmth of the fire is still reminiscent on your cheeks
you envision the glow of the fire that danced across all the faces as they sat in a ring around the hearth 
you absently watched the fire 
you observed the embers spark and fizzle their way up into the navy abyss
leading you to the stars that hung in the sky like fireflies stuck in the infinite spans of velvety darkness 


you roll over to find the skin on your shoulders stings
the sun was hot
the day was beautiful 
the water calm
the sand was cool when you buried your feet in that morning
that same sand still sticks between your toes 
reminiscent of a good day 
a summer day
well spent

Hello, I'm Brandi Hofer, and I wear many creative hats. I'm an artist, muralist, author, podcaster, and educator, with a passion for making meaningful connections through art. I'm proud to be a collected Canadian Artist, with my work exhibited internationally and across North America. Recently, I had the privilege of showcasing my pieces in the vibrant art scene of NYC. A highlight of my career has been the completion of my largest project to date, a monumental 3082 sq/ft mural titled Choose Love and Join Hands in Truth and Reconciliation. Along with the installation of this massive project, we ran an Indigenous Mentorship Program. To celebrate the project we held and unveiling and Final Ceremony with elders blessing, dancing and drumming. This collaboration with my community holds great personal significance. In 2021, I took my commitment to creative education further by founding an Art Academy in partnership with my local public school district, with a focus on inclusivity, diversity, and self discovery. Additionally, I established the Colour Me Happy online Community, Book, and Podcast, aiming to spread creative joy far and wide. In the coming years, I'm excited to take my educational workshops to the next level by building an eco-friendly artist residency and arts centre right here in Canada. My artwork has been featured on national television and has graced the pages of international publications and the prestigious Saatchi Gallery. I'm grateful for the support of collectors like Jillian Harris, Sarah Baeumler, Andrew Salgado, Jann Arden, and Sarah Nicole Landry (thebbirdspapaya). My studio, where my children and I create, is nestled in the tranquil Canadian prairies. It's not just a space, but a sanctuary for artistic expression and shared moments of creativity. Her work has been featured on national television and can be found in international publications. She has experience in creating custom artworks for designers and translates her artwork into large-scale murals. Hofer has attended residencies at Red Deer College, Toronto Island, the Marnay Art Centre outside of Paris France, and Montreal, Quebec. You can listen to her interviewed about her life and process on several podcast platforms. Her work has appeared in HGTV’s House of Bryan, and featured in a General Motors commercial.
