Sherry Hanson

I have drawn all of my life. But it wasn’t until after most of my children were grown, that I took my first art classes.  I am a native born Oregonian and spent much of my growing up years on the Columbia River and traveling around the state. Most of my life has been spent in the Portland area, but I was lucky enough to live in central and southern Oregon for a while before my husband retired. I now live in Buxton in the Coast Range foothills.

My love of animals is often the focus of my art. Every creature holds a fascination for me, from the mighty elephant to the tiny honeybee. My goal is to reflect my love and reverence for the wonders of the world in my art, and it has become my passion to capture and share the spirit I see there.
