Ann Hanson has been painting the West – as she sees it- for more than 30 years. From Cowboys and Cowgirls to Native Americans, she has a deep love for the Western way of life. “I have a great appreciation for the artwork involved in Western Regalia, whether cowboy or Native American and have focused on capturing it in my artwork along with the people who wear it.” She attended two years at a community college as an art major where she focused on graphics and technical illustration. Painting is self-taught and is a never-ending research project. Ann tries to challenge herself with each new painting and learn new techniques she can incorporate into her unique style. Ann's work is in several national shows including Cowgirl Up at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Small Works, Great Wonders at the National Cowboy Museum and the Buffalo Bill Art Show at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Her work has been featured in Southwest Art, Art of the West, Western ArtCollector, Cowboys and Indians, Horses in Art and Cowgirl Magazines to name a few. Ann's paintings have graced four Western Horseman covers, the latest being April, 2020. "I'm having a great time doing what I love. I feel truly blessed".
