The Artist Says:

"I love the process of creating art.  I tend to focus on the modern day west as I see it around me. While saying that, I love the classical style of painting by greats such as William Bouguereau and try to incorporate some of the essences of that into my work."


Ann Hanson captures the heart and soul of the West in her paintings.  She wants you to feel like you have been there and can reach out and grab the moment.  Hanson paints with oils and pastels and is noted for her very realistic and highly detailed paintings.
"I love capturing the subtleties of day to day life and portraying the small snippets that look into the lives and hearts of my friends and neighbors."
