This biography from the Archives of AskART:
William B. Hannum (1947-1998)

"William Hannum was one of the most popular artists in recent times in the California Art Association.  His paintings commonly depicted rolling California hillsides, coastal scenes, trees and still life subjects.  Bold and broad brush strokes executed with thick, intense color characterized his expressionist style.  Hannum created works of art that intentionally conveyed a feeling of robust vitality; through them he expressed his emotional response to nature or an image.  His work was highly sought after throughout his fourteen-year association with the CAA until his death from cancer in 1998 at age 51.

Hannum's painting style was influenced by two Art Association artists: George DeGroat and Keith Lindberg.  His formal training included studies at the Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles and the Art Students League in New York City.  Hannum's interest in painting and drawing began in childhood and he habitually carried a sketchbook to capture regional scenery and record notes about color and mood.  Although his paintings appear to be painted on location, Hannum was a studio painter, building on ideas from his sketches and progressively working them into a complete theme."

He became ill in 1997 and stopped painting.

From April 8, 1999 through May 5, 1999, the Carmel Art Association presented a retrospective exhibit of paintings by William Hannum and selected works by Helen Barker in the gallery's Beardsley Room.
