Erin Hanson's landscape paintings are created using a colorful oil medium. The psychedelic canvases evoke a vibrant energy and sense of spirit. In her works, Erin depicts whimsical and colorful versions of forest and hillside scenes that appear dreamlike and artful.

The visual artist is a UC Berkley graduate who studied bioengineering in addition to her art training. Erin Hanson’s works capture nature’s complex beauty that is translated through the use of heavy and textured strokes.

Her art pieces reference her hiking and mountain climbing trips and resemble colorful mosaics of nature’s many fragments. Her paintings reveal textured brushstrokes and can be compared to vintage art pieces by Monet and Van Gogh, two very different artists that seem to influence Erin.
