Portraits Project

My Portraits Project is a series of twelve large-scale watercolor portraits that are available for collaborative shows and installation at venues throughout the Southeastern US.

Portraits of musicians by Jamie Hansen

My family attends a lot of live concerts. When COVID closed performing venues and put live concerts on hold, I wanted to learn about how musicians were responding. I invited musicians worldwide to send me stories of changes in their lives and in their relationship with music. I painted from their words and photos.

Portraits Project

I aim to capture a musician’s likeness, and also how their music makes me feel. This portrait series has helped me feel connected to other artists even though so much of 2020 was spent in isolation.
