Hi everyone! I am Meredith Hanson, welcome to my website!
I am originally from Bedford, NY and currently live on Nantucket. After graduating from college, I made the big move to the island in the fall of 2011 after realizing that NYC life wasn’t for me.
I had vacationed on Nantucket with my family for many years but it wasn't until I moved here year round that I discovered just how incredible the art community on this magical little island really and truly is.
Growing up, I knew with all my heart that I would choose a life and career in the arts. As a teen, I studied pastels with a private instructor and then went off to Wheaton College (MA) to study oils and art history. When I settled on Nantucket, I continued to work in oil as I fell in love with Nantucket's breathtaking landscapes and seascapes.
A few years ago, I went on an art retreat weekend with my best friend and her mom to Monhegan, ME. That trip opened my eyes to gouache paint, a medium similar to watercolor, but oh so different!
Recently, my success with gouache has given me the opportunity to work with some of Nantucket’s fastest growing businesses. Thanks to the vibrant, entrepreneurial culture on the island, I have expanded my own business platform and now use my artistic talent in an exciting new way by painting one-of-a-kind designs on shoes, clothing, furniture, accessories, murals… you name it!
If you have a fun project you’d like to collaborate on, I would love to hear from you!
Enjoy the artwork!
