This biography from the Archives of AskART:
As a young man, Gene Hackman studied art at the Art Students League of New York. During his appearance on Inside the Actor's Studio he says laughingly, "I thought maybe I could feed myself as an artist while I was waiting to be an actor."

He says that he has painted ever since, drawing or painting something almost all the time. He rarely shows his artwork, but occasionally donates his paintings for auctions, etc. (Lorrie's)

Hackman, born in San Bernardino, California, left home at age 16 to join the marines for three years.  Then he lived in New York City, until he was age 30, and then returned to California where he pursued his successful acting career. 

During the later part of his life, he is living in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his second wife, Betsy Arakawa, a musician and shop owner.  There he finds much time to pursue the many cultural events offered by the community as well as his own love of easel painting.
