Bob Hanneman

Bob Hanneman works are inspired by childhood memories and his career as a greenhouse gardener. Working in pen and felt-tipped marker, Hanneman packs his drawings with rows of miniature flowerpots, goldfish, and seedlings which are then overlayed with figures, animals, and flowers. “I started drawing to keep me out of trouble,” he says. “I just learned on my own…[drawing] improved my life real good. That’s why I keep on drawing.” Hanneman’s work has been exhibited and collected extensively with drawings currently held by Wisconsin Governor’s Mansion, the Waisman Center’s Harvey A. Stevens International Collection of Art, and numerous private collections.
