Art Brokerage: Scott Hanson American Artist. Originally from La Jolla, California with a lifestyle centered around the sea, Scott Hanson was first drawn to Hawaii twenty years ago by the prospect of clear waters and abundant marine life. He has called Hawaii home ever since. An avid dive traveler and underwater photographer, Scott has logged countless hours of first hand observation and interaction with his subjects, particularly dolphins and mantas, in their natural habitat. This extensive familiarity with his subjects allows him to capture in his work a feeling of the fluid motion and free spirited nature of these magnificent animals.
