DRINK SIMPLE X MEREDITH HANSON
Kate Weiler and Jeff Rose, co-founders of Drink Simple, called me in the spring to discuss a “fab collab”opportunity. Together, we teamed up to create a custom Drink Simple label from one of my watercolor designs. Featuring the Brant Point Lighthouse with colorful catboats sailing in the harbor and a blue bike in the foreground, the design evokes a nostalgic feeling for the island we refer to as “our happy place!”
VERONICA BEARD X MEREDITH HANSON
A collaboration for a great cause! Veronica Beard brand and I teamed up on a fun idea and a great way to support our furry friends at Nantucket Island Safe Harbor for Animals. Over the course of two weeks, I painted 9 of their canvas totes with some of my favorite Nantucket themes. We invited everyone to join us to celebrate and sold out of every single bag in 45 minutes and 100% of sales was donated to NiSHA! Talk about teamwork!
BANNIERE CO X MEREDITH HANSON
This past winter, I teamed up with Olivia Meyer, founder of Banniere Co to create the ultimate “Nantucket” design for her silk scarf company. Olivia travels all over the country and the world to find inspiration and to connect with local artists. Through her travels and experiences, Olivia has gathered quite the team of artists into the Banniere Co brand who represent their city or town through various different mediums and themes. For our collaboration, I stuck to a neutral palette of blues, greens, and greys and thought about all of the parts of Nantucket that I love and feel most inspired by.

Beau and Ro x Meredith Hanson
Sara Rossi, a talented designer, Beau and Ro business owner, and a great friend, called me in early 2017 to talk about an opportunity to collaborate together. Through a unique process, Sara was able to take photos of my gouache artwork, edit the images, create textile patterns and print the designs right onto the various leathers used to create one-of-kind clutches and totes. The collection is sold in Skinny Dip Nantucket, Skinny Dip Charleston, and online at beauandro.com.

Shortly after Sara Rossi and I finished putting together our Beau and Ro x MH Watercolor Collection, we put our heads together on another collaboration. Sara and fellow business partner, Taylor Ellsworth, opened their second "Skinny Dip" store location on King Street in Charleston, SC. Sara and Taylor commissioned me to paint a live mural of "Rainbow Row" during their Preview Party in late March.

Nantucket Sole designer and founder, Marla Sanford, and I teamed up during the 2017 summer season on Nantucket to create the ultimate custom hand-painted sandals! We held our first event at a local store in downtown Nantucket — leather, canvas and suede sandals were purchased and I got right to painting on them! Over the next few weeks, 60+ pairs of sandals were individually painted from a variety of island themes requested by the purchasers. Marla and I held our second event the following month - another great success! Over 100 pairs of sandals were painted and sold throughout the course of the summer. Following on our success, Marla and I launched a limited edition collection which sold out in a single day.

Town Pool founders, Luke Gutelius and Sean Dew, commissioned me in 2016 for several exciting projects. In one week, I transformed their store staircase into a fun landscape mural of the Brant Point Lighthouse. The next project was to paint a mural inspired by Nathaniel Pillbrick's novel, In the Heart of the Sea. I painted the scene of the monstrous whale right before it rammed and sank the Essex whaleship.

Fitness guru and owner of Go Figure Barre Studios, Christina Schwefel, reached out to me in 2015 to discuss an exciting partnership opportunity. Christina commissioned me to paint the "Sugar Plum Palace” backdrop for the second act of the Nutcracker performance which Go Figure sponsors every year during Stroll Weekend on Nantucket. Over a two month period, I painted a 15' x 24' muslin canvas backdrop and a 12' Christmas tree for the play. The show and the backdrop were both great successes! Go Figure Barre Studios has used the backdrop in every performance since.
