Wine Country Artist Erin Hanson is an Impressionist

Artist Erin Hanson is an Impressionist, which happens to be my favorite style of oil…

Long the lover of fine arts, Impressionism is my favorite time in art history; both then and now.  I appreciate how blending strokes come together to masterfully become visual experiences of landscapes. My Jose says this frequently: “Art is anything that elicits an emotion.” He’s right.

Think wine bottle label art…

When I go to Erin Hanson’s Website, I feel vibrancy, sensuality, grandeur, tranquil, purpose, serenity, breath of spring, summer fun, southwestern, and a descending sunset taking away a fun day… all at once, over a period of as many digital slides from her work. I’d love to see a full exhibit of her work, but we’re not in the same space right now. So, I’ll settle on her Website and bring you a snap shot of what you’ll find when you visit her.

Erin Hanson

Erin Hanson is a life-long painter, beginning her study of oil painting at eight years old. As a teenager, she worked in a mural studio creating paintings for restaurants and casinos around the world. A graduate of UC Berkeley, Hanson majored in Bioengineering while continuing to pursue her artistic passion.

Inspired by rock climbing Red Rock Canyon and the southern California desert, Hanson has since spent almost a decade painting the dramatic scenery of Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California. Erin Hanson has created a unique style of her own, bringing elements of classic impressionism together with modern expressionism and adding a dash of “plein-air style.” Her oil paintings stand out in a crowd, bringing a fresh new look to contemporary Western landscapes.

She has an upcoming event.
