About

Tina Druce-Hoffman is a professional illustrator, graphic designer and instructor.

Her extensive table top gaming work includes the Collectable Card Games; The Wheel of Time™, 7th Sea Collectible Card Game™ (A Multiple Origins Award winner), Legend of the Five Rings Collectible Card Game (A Multiple Origins Award Winner), Warlord: Saga of the Storm and RIFTS™.

She also illustrated the book The Survival Guide for Working Moms published by the office supply company she designed at for 11 years. She illustrated and composed the graphic design for Sylvia’s Story: The Chicago River Tragedy of the S.S. Eastland and Little Fido.

Her art has been featured numerous times by Artsnacks, a monthly art supply subscription service. She runs and curates her own Etsy store where you can find prints and jewelry. Fresh work is added weekly to her Instagram account, artbytinadh. Tina is well versed in all the art mediums and many crafts due to her insatiable curiosity.
