Dana Hanson

Artist bio

Artist’s Biography for Dana Ann Hanson Dana Ann Hanson is an Oil Artist with a unique prophetic style that comes from seeking the heartbeat of GOD. Her heart is to paint and create art that ministers and speaks to the heart of the viewer. Her prophetic line of art is composed from a combination of dreams, visions and spiritual inspiration. Art is a part of Dana’s DNA, she doesn’t pursue art, art has pursued her. Creating daily is a must for Dana, for it’s like a hunger that consistently needs to be satisfied. Dana is a self-taught artist who was inspired by her grandmother, Frieda Lord, who was well known locally not just for her beauty shop and making women beautiful, but for her oil paintings of local landmarks and beautiful flowers. Dana followed in her grandmother Frieda’s footsteps and not only became a Beautician like her grandmother, but a well-known local oil artist. Dana’s creative passion is truly a GOD given gift, which is inspired and infused with a heavenly energy that comes from the Spirit of Truth. As she prays over each piece, she can feel the Spiritual energy/ anointing flowing through her brush, and into the painting. Dana not only feels HIS tangible presence as she creates with Him, but knows others do as well because of hearing the continual testimonies of those whose hearts and lives have been touched by the art she is blessed to create. This is what fuels Dana’s passion to keep painting, knowing that her art is HOLY SPIRIT anointed, to minister Truth & Life to the world. Dana received her first art grant in 2018 that was titled “Healing the Land”, which was a Love story between Creator GOD and HIS Native Children. These paintings came from dreams and visions and was able to put them onto canvas as she created with HOLY SPIRIT. The complete story is told through each piece, which can be viewed at Dana has exhibited her work in several locations. She has won awards, sold many of her original works, and currently sells prints of her artwork on her website. She has done book covers for several authors, and has illustrated Children’s books. Dana currently does commissioned portrait paintings for clients, featuring either animals or people, but her favorite is still the prophetic art line. She loves to work in all mediums, however her medium of choice is oil on canvas, or on Masonite. Dana has recently re-tired from a long full-time career of cake designing and is now completely devoted to creating art fulltime. Instead of artwork that is eaten and gone in minutes, she will be painting and creating art that will last a lifetime, art that will both aid in spreading the LORDS WORD, but also ministering HIS LOVE to the hearts of many.


Bravehearts in Battle



Artist Statement

My artwork is visual interpretation of Ephesians 6:10-20 and all of the other Scriptures mentioned that we could use and incorporate into our work. It represents the spiritual battle that we wage with unseen forces of darkness, and yet depicts the power and authority we have as believers over them. The Bravehearts in Battle in my painting are the two women of different ethnic origin who have come together as true sisters standing together fighting the enemy trusting and knowing their GOD is with them, and that HE has sent to them HIS angelic protection. They are Brave and fearless because they know WHO they belong to, and they have put their Trust in HIM, JESUS THE SON OF THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING GOD.
