Erin Hanson Fans Gather for Intimate Live Painting Demonstration

Thursday, October 9, 2014

Fans of Erin Hanson gathered on October 4th for a rare treat, an opportunity to view her take a painting from initial conception to beautiful masterpiece. The room was unexpectedly packed through the afternoon with the attendees rapt attention honed in on each brush stroke. 

"Her enthusiasm and confidence was as much an inspiration as her artistic ability and unique technique.”






ERIN HANSON has been painting in oils since she was 8 years old. As a young artist, she worked at a mural studio creating 40-foot-tall paintings on canvas, while selling art commissions on the side. After getting a degree in Bioengineering from UC Berkeley, Erin became a rock climber at Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. Inspired by the colorful scenery she was climbing, she decided to paint one painting every week for the rest of her life. She has stuck to that decision ever since, becoming one of the most prolific artists in history. Erin Hanson's style is known as "Open Impressionism" and is now taught in art schools worldwide. With thousands of collectors eagerly anticipating her work and millions of followers online, Hanson has become an iconic, driving force in the rebirth of contemporary impressionism.
