About me

Connie Hanselman is a professional, contemporary oil painter who grew up loving art. She exhibits her current portfolio of artwork locally in her city of Oakwood, regionally and nationally. She received art training from Wright State, and worked nearly two decades illustrating at WPAFB. Hanselman is intrigued to find that what she notices in life gets layered into her paintings, and loves to tell her visual story with a sensitivity to color, light, shape and pattern and sometimes even humor.
