My passions include art, photography, and technology. I work with a variety of traditional media such pencils, pens, paints, dyes, fabric, papers, and threads, and digital medial such as Macintosh computers (big time Mac junkie), software, and Epson printers; and cameras (Nikon girl) to create my work. I have been honored to win well over 200 awards for my art quilts, and have have my work exhibited around the world, featured in many magazines, books, and on TV, and in the permanent collection of the National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky and the Chandler Center for the Arts in Chandler, Arizona.
I have also authored or co-authored 15 books, have written well over a hundred articles for vaious publications, and work as a graphic artist & website consultant. I am primarily involved with The Parkinson Alliance, the Parkinson's Unity Walk, Team Parkinson, and DBS4PD.org, working with them since early 2001. I am also an avid nature photographer, and I photograph birds, butterflies, and landscapes every chance I get. Please visit my photography website at www.GloriaHansenPhotography.com.
