Ani Hoover

b. 1969
Born: St. Joseph, Missouri

Ani Hoover is a fiber artist and painter who hails from St. Joseph, Missouri. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Missouri State University and her Master of Fine Arts from American University. Though her early career primarily consisted of painting, she has since focused more exclusively on fiber work, sculpture and installations using recycled and unconventional materials. [1] Her recent work has also been influenced by DIY culture and particularly her grandmother's old craft magazines. [2] Her pieces explore these traditional techniques of sewing, crochet, quilting and weaving, but on a larger scale and more contemporary context. [3]

Hoover's work has been featured in exhibitions regionally and nationally and is included in collections at the Burchfield Penney Art Center, Albright Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo Seminary and Roswell Park Cancer Institute, among others. [4]
