Shan Bryan-Hanson

Welcome to my studio website.  It's a pleasure to share a bit about my art-making process, which is all about the beautiful messiness and possibilities of paint.  The departure point for a new painting usually lies in an observation of the natural world. Fragments of tree bark, moss, and decaying leaves from the forest floor, stones collected at the beach or branches and flowers found in my backyard are indirect, yet primary influences, on the paintings.  

If you have questions about the work or would like to exchange some thoughts about art just sent me a note through the contact page.  I share my art making process here and on Instagram @Shan_Bryan_Hanson. Thanks so much for stopping by!
