ANNETTE HANNA - Pastel and Oil Painter
Dividing her time between two coasts, part-time Whidbey Island resident Annette Adrian Hanna is an award winning artist who finds inspiration in the people and landscape around her. Equally accomplished in both pastel and oil, she loves the outdoors and enjoys plein-air painting, particularly on Whidbey, where the beaches, marshes and wetlands form the never-ending subjects that keep her creative juices flowing.
"The beauty of the landscape, to me, has a very spiritual quality. I can go to the same location at different times, or seasons, or years, find a different viewpoint or even the same viewpoint, and paint a completely new and entirely different painting. That is the wonder and gratification of the artist. You paint with your hand, your brain, and your heart." Annette said.
