Long cypress trees stretch high into the blue summer sky of Monterey, gentle lavender shadows creating a network of patterns across the milky bark. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, each stroke a distinct color and texture.


ERIN HANSON is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oils as a young child.  Her passion for natural beauty is seen in her work as she transforms vistas familiar and rare into stunning interpretations of bold color, playful rhythms and raw emotional impact.
