A brilliant rainbow of color bursts over Lake La Quinta, in the Coachella Valley. The desert palm trees stand starkly against the vibrant hues of dawn, reflected again in the still waters of the lake.


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.

With hundreds 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.
