Here's some background on the artist:
The outside world that Jim Hansel sees is not the one we see. At an early age, Jim was diagnosed with an eye condition called Stargardts. This eye condition, has left Jim legally blind from an early age. Despite his disability, Jim has learned to bring his work into focus. But Jim has said that he wants his artwork to be judged on its own merit and not on the basis that he is an artist with a visual impairment. This determination has launched Hansel into the national spotlight. Since the release of his first image in 1987, Jim has produced nearly 100 limited edition prints. Many of the editions are sold out. His reputation for detail and his distinctive, colorful landscapes, have proven to be very popular with art collectors across the country.
Reaching his level of popularity has not been achieved on his own. Jim's wife, Lois plays a major roll in the success of their art business. Since their marriage in 1985, Lois has been involved in the production of the complete line of Jim Hansel art prints. With a background in advertising and print production, Lois oversees the printing of Jim's artwork to ensure the highest quality possible. Jim and Lois have two children, Joe and Laura, who share their lives.
Jim has also received much recognition and numerous awards for his work. In recent years, Jim has been commissioned to produce several painting, which have been featured by Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever and The Minnesota Deer Hunters Association. The limited edition prints are being used to raise money for these conservation organizations. Hansel has been honored with many other awards to his credit.
