About Maureen Hansen

Typically, Hansen’s paintings are known for their saturated color in oil or gouache and their gestural brushwork. Her exhibitions feature landscape, still life and portraiture.

Maureen Hansen trained under William Robinson at QUT in the late 1980’s and carries on the tradition of observational painting as influenced by 20th Century Modernists like Matisse, Bonnard and the Fauvist group.

Hansen is a true colorist who paints directly in front of her subject for hours observing changing light from life.

Her work is found in Parliament House Collection Canberra, Brisbane, Ipswich, Redcliffe and Warwick Art Collections. She has been awarded the Tattersalls Landscape prize and Churchie Art Prize.

Overseas, Hansen has exhibited in London and St. Petersburg. Her portrait of Robert Forster of the Go-Betweens was published in the 2017 edition of Rolling Stone magazine in Berlin.
