Nancy Hannum

nancy hannum

I Michael Schuessler have created this page in memory to Nancy Hannum, with blessings from her husband Terry Hannum. I studied under Nancy Hannum for a number of years nearly 2 decades ago. Nancy Hannum invented/created the unique medium of chalk pastel on raw, untreated canvas which she used as under paintings. I was the only other person she taught this special technique to, at the time she swore me to secrecy until her passing. Nancy also taught me the ins and outs of the whole process of her works and mediums, which gave me the framework, principles and foundation to become the professional artist I am today. For this I shall forever be indebted to her.

I wanted to create a special space for Nancy's collectors to come, a place for her work to live on. A place to View, Purchase and/or Re-sell her works of Fine Art. I also provide services to, Authenticate and/or Appraise her work. I can also Repair her work. Fees vary. For more information contact me at 303-297-0943 or e-mail me at

For more information, and to view the works below in person for purchase, please contact me at the above number or E-mail.

Nancy Hannum made her mark on the Fine Arts community locally and abroad. She was well known and respected as a Teacher, Instructor, and Professional Artist. Her works gain more value with each passing year. She invented/created the technique of Pastel on Raw Canvas, which she taught me, Michael Schuessler; Nancy used this technique on canvas and on her paper works. This combined wither ability to mix different medias, created a style that will not age and is unique around the world. Nancy has been recognized by different museums around the country being able to show her works within them and also receiving awards from them. Nancy also had hundreds of Private Collectors around the world; her works within Corporate Collections around the world are numerous. Nancy Hannum may have passed too early from this world in 2010, but her creativity will live forever.
