Hansen Designs is a boutique designer studio specializing in designing and producing exquisite and unique works of art.
Ann Evelyn Hansen
designs and handcrafts all the jewelry and the chandeliers.
We search the markets to find beads and gemstones of special beauty.
We also import from Austria Swarovski Strass Aurora Borealis crystals which we employ in the hand making of the necklaces and the chandeliers. Swarovski crystals are the only perfectly cut crystals in the world and therefore the most expensive.
Strass AB is the highest quality Swarovski makes. In 1956, Manfred Swarovski worked with Christian Dior to perfect the process of coating the crystal with an almost imperceptible layer of metal to give the stone a rainbow sparkle called Aurora Borealis, the crystal used in our unique necklaces and chandeliers.
Most of the chandeliers are Maria Theresa style for which Ann Hansen has an original design complemented by the VP of Swarovski Lighting USA.
The interior design is made to order and keeps the tone of Louis XV style. We like to use Silik furniture inported from Milan, Italy. Silik produces the highest quality of Luis XV style furniture.
The oil on canvas reproductions are commissioned to European artists while the frames are made from exotic wood and imported from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The porcelains are imported from European countries like Great Britain, France, Austria and Germany, most of them vintage. They represent all the major producing houses of Europe. In the design process we also employ other artefacts.
About my work.
First, to stop once and for all any remarks with a tint of envy.
I am primarily an interior designer specialized in high end homes.
I show you a few pictures in Louis XV style.
For those who misinterpreted my pictures, to understand that I do not want to «show off», … But I want to show my work as an designer.
Regarding the drawings:
I am just a beginner but I love with passion what I am doing.
It’s a particular style but this is me; it’s my life and my works are part of it. It might not be at a too high level now, I am still a beginner and self-taught. I work hard and many hours to create those images from pencils.
I have a good eye for many imagies out there, but my love is to create myself my imagies, characters for my stories or poems, that reflect my life, feelings, ideas.
My style involves a lot of work and dedication and requires talent not only for drawing but for writing as well. Only fussed together comes out the power of my message. I really don’t know how to name my style. It’s a combination of writing with a graphic representation of a moment of my life or a feeling or as I said before, an idea, a thought, or a message to the world. It’s not so simple as it appears at first site and if one does not pay attention to both parts they will miss the message of the whole creation. One part without the other is weaker; the power of the creation stands in the fusion of two works of art.
People are not used, yet with this style. At no school has been heard about it.
It’s a noble passion!
It’s new, it’s original, it’s my style and most important, I love it with passion and I am sure it’ll be a powerful trend in arts, because it’s the mirror of the artist’s sacrifice, dedicating himself: physically, spiritually and emotionally to his/hers work of art.
It’s painful but he/she loves it with great passion!
Each creation of his/hers bears the footprint of his/hers heart and soul.
I do not work to sell!
I work to be able to breath! It gives me life, power, satisfaction!
It gives me the wisdom to realize:
Life is most important and worth to be lived no matter what.
Also gives me the ability to see:
What a wonderful world is out there!
There has been said and debated so much about art, that we would need a too long time to read all written on this subject.
The cradle of art is inside us. We just have to use all our senses and look for it. Art is everywhere around us. We breath art, we are art. We can create art.
The best language to communicate around the world is art.
The universe is a little known, piece of art.
Just look for it, it’s everywhere, You’ll find it, somehow, somewhere.
Rich the sky and touch a star, You’ll feel it's art, so far!
Touch a heart and feel its beat, Release your heart to talk to it.
The feeling felt by your heart, It is a marvel piece of art!
