Meet MB Hanrahan, a multi-talented artist who lives and creates in Ventura, California.
According to the artist, who considers herself a pop artist, "My paintings and sculptures usually contain popular cultural references — present and past. My ideas are the best art I make — I work in whatever medium is best suited to realize an idea.
My finest creations are the products of collaborations.
I paint murals for my community, or with my community. A significant portion of my mural work has involved youth, from elementary to college level, in both the design and painting of the mural."
I first encountered her genius when I bought an auction item—a mural painting session she generously donated—at a charity event in the late 1990s.
A few years later she sent a Halloween greeting to my husband – a provocative pumpkin picture postcard! Many more special occasion cards followed over the years...
Most importantly, MB Hanrahan's mural created magic at The Orange Woods.
