Success through creative independence

Postby Charles » Sun Dec 01, 2013 4:00 am

A few days ago I met one of the coolest ladies I've ever met in art. Her story is amazing as she went to college to be a biologist. She achieved her goal and then realized she wasn't happy with it. So she went back to what she always loved ever since she was a little girl...

Painting in oils!

And daddy-o can she paint!

She's created her own little empire in the fine art world. She hikes in the mountains and canyons and deserts and then she creates explosive canvases with what she sees.

She's become so successful that this past summer she opened her own spacious art gallery just over the border of Burbank in Glendale California. She's a hard worker, paints obsessively, packs her own canvases and personally delivers them when their oversized. She frequents all the major art festivals in the West and she has several galleries across the country that exhibit and sell her work.

All of this because she loves to create and keeps creating!

Her name is Erin Hanson.

Check out her site and her sold works...
