Ann Hanson

I want to capture the heart and soul of the West in my paintings. I love portraying the small snippets of time that look in to the heart and soul of my friends and neighbors, capturing the subtleties of day to day life. In my 30+ year career my work has been included in many top national Western art shows including Cowgirl Up at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum; Small Works, Great Wonders at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum; American Miniatures at Settlers West Gallery; and A Timeless Legacy at the Hockaday Museum. Recent awards include the 2012 Cheyenne Frontier Days People’s Choice and People’s Choice at the 2014 Buffalo Bill Quick Draw. I’m privileged to have my work featured in the 2016 July/August issue of Art of the West Magazine and the March 2017 Southwest Art Magazine.
