About the Artist

Tom Hausken was born in Minneapolis Minnesota and lives in the Ahtanum Valley in Central Washington. Mr. Hausken is a graduate of Seattle Pacific University (1985) and continued his studies in drawing and painting at the University of Washington (1987) with Spencer Moseley and Michael Dailey. His paintings are rich with texture and layering. He often works on thick paper and cuts the paintings apart, rearranging and refining compositions through this process. His paintings are grounded in landscape forms and colors yet he avoids including details
that would imply a specific place; he portrays a sense of place through paint.
