A contemporary Master of Modern Impressionism, Hanson’s artistic abilities are rooted in a lifetime of capturing the world around her. Beginning her career with daily sketches as a child, she further honed her observation skills by mastering science at UC Berkeley. Majoring in bioengineering, Hanson applied science to her artistic craft, creating her own wet on wet painting style, “Open Impressionism.”
Art lovers who enjoy the impasto style of Renoir and Van Gogh will delight in Hanson’s landscape studies. Breathtaking panoramas, stunning rock formations and even the wind sighing through the trees are brought to life through gentle explosions of color and texture.
“Each new landscape is an exciting new color palette, a new study in composition and perspective,” says the artist. “After a few more decades of painting landscapes, I hope to be able to fully capture those fleeting moments of perfection I discover in the landscape and transport my viewers to the world as I see it: bold and truly beautiful.”
Elysian Valley, locally known as Frogtown due to the red-legged frogs that teemed in the LA River years ago, is a unique and ethnically diverse neighborhood. Despite lacking the usual bars and restaurants, the small stretch of homes and warehouses recently garnered the title, “The most talked about” neighborhood in LA. And for good reason. Frogtown is home to a growing number of skilled California artisans and artists, many of whom are featured in the popular annual Frogtown Art Walk.
Hanson’s current Art & Wine Tour in Paso Robles is on display until Sept 30th, featuring Wine Country landscapes. Also scheduled is her October 2nd book signing, a live oil painting demostration by the artist herself on Oct 3rd followed by Hanson's Studios on the Park month long exhibition in California's popular Paso Robles, thus rounding off her Fall series of events.
Future events are announced via the artist’s newsletter, which may be subscribed to at this link.
