Hardcover, printed in full color, using vivid inks and high quality paper to fully appreciate the artwork. 268 pages. A biography of artist Jeffrey Owen Hanson and his journey beyond adversity.
This is the story of one kid. A story of what one, visually impaired kid from Kansas can do. A kid with contagious generosity, setting an example for individuals and corporations to become more philanthropic–to change our world. A kid who responded to a challenge and redefined himself. Jeff Hanson’s art is hanging in Warren Buffett’s home. The Association of Fundraising Professionals named Jeff “Young Philanthropist of the Year.” The Small Business Administration named Jeff “Young Entrepreneur of the Year.” The trifecta! Jeff Hanson is defined by art, philanthropy, and entrepreneurship. Not the kid down the street who lost his vision to a brain tumor. Jeff Hanson will raise one million dollars for charity before he is 20. One Million by 20!
Hardcover, printed in full color, using vivid inks and high-quality paper. 274 pages. Part II of the inspiring biography of artist Jeffrey Owen Hanson.
Poet Mary Oliver asked, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Jeffrey Hanson had an answer. A bold, creative, unlikely, unpredictable roller coaster of an answer. To live “the purple driven life.” For Jeff, being an artist, this implies his love of art, bold colors (especially purple) and his mission to change the world through art. He was driven to make a difference, despite his medical challenges. But the phrase also implies Jeff’s determination to live his own life, uninfluenced by other’s styles and opinions. He embraced the notion that he was different from everyone else. He never allowed his CLOD to define him. And as you will read, Jeff’s purple driven life was filled with love, kindness and generosity, leading him on an incredible journey.
But every story has a storm, Jeffrey. Yours had a hurricane.
