Carol A. Hanna

"Songs of the Birds: I have endeavored to interpret the songs of birds using a visual language that represents the color of the birds and the notes of their songs. Rhythms, pitch, softness or loudness of voice are represented by the color patterns. The airbrush picks up the shimmering color."

Endangered Song - Acrylic on canvas 24 x 36 in.

Born in Toledo, Ohio, Carol lived in the Ann Arbor area for most of her adult life.  She has received both BFA and MA degrees and attended various schools including Eastern Michigan University, University of Michigan and Washtenaw Community College.
