About Meghann Hanour

First and foremost, thank you to everyone that has taken the time to support me and my efforts as an artist. Whether that is being a patron, sharing my work, looking at my work, or just being part of the greater arts community.

My current project, titled Testimony, is rooted in the raw narrative of a woman’s journey from a place of darkness, to the light of freedom. This narrative will be told across a series of five large-scale paintings, totaling over one-hundred feet wide when combined. A scale of this magnitude will allow viewers to feel as though they are stepping into the scenes themselves.



My hope is that this series will help me speak – shout, mumble, whisper – into the darkness. To build bridges for those who haven’t the strength to stay afloat – those who are trapped. To give them wings, doors, windows, and sky. To transport them into verdant pastures where they lay under the sun’s glory.

I’m self-taught. With only a few months of formal instruction over the last 20 years, my process is unique. I start a painting by first sewing garments for my models, then posing and photographing them to help build lines and images before a brushstroke occurs. I work on big canvases, capturing movement, gesture, joy and pain in my work. Compelled to create beauty and narrative, the ache I feel never relents. 

From past collections...

I believe art is a way, a language, a sword piercing heart and spirit. It enters the body in one instant like that of breath, unseen, fueling the ability to breathe. Life is art. My life is art. Art has fed me and I want to use it to feed others.
