Erin Hanson

Erin Hanson began a movement with her “open impressionism” technique. This style is now a worldwide phenomenon. Open impressionist paintings combine modern expressionism with classic impressionism to capture landscapes from across the U.S. and around the world.

Inspired by the vibrant color, brilliant light, and incredible beauty found in natural spaces, Erin Hanson’s works are a love letter to the outdoors. Her paintings capture the movement of a scene, allowing the viewer to see the world from the artist’s perspective. Some pieces are a snapshot of natural beauty found in everyday scenes while others are depictions of vast landscapes found in coastal areas, in farmland, during drives across the U.S., or in National Parks and monuments.


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. Her frequent forays into National Parks and other havens of nature include backpacking expeditions, rock climbing, and photo safaris.  Hanson's unique painting style has become known as Open Impressionism, which is now taught in art schools around the world. 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, and she is quickly recognized as a prolific, modern master.
