Mrs. Hansen was born and raised in Springfield, MO. She and her husband Jason attended high school together but, they didn’t start dating until college. Upon graduation, she worked in various areas of the art /design industry, including, teaching art for a year at the Springfield Seventh-Day Adventist Junior Academy.

After having her first child, Mrs. Hansen was able to stay home and concentrate on being a mom. Though life as a full-time Mom can be hectic (most of you know Kareena and Izaak), she has stayed active in pursuing new art techniques.

You'd be surprised to know that...
I have a hard time going to museums because I want to touch everything. One time, I touched a painting by Van Gogh. Not just the frame but the actual paint on the canvas…sshhh, don’t tell anyone!


Mrs. Hansen is married to Jason (who brought her to the Adventist faith.) They have two beautiful children; Kareena and Izaak, plus two cats.
