The Galleries

Children's Rooms


Using only non-toxic, durable, waterbase paints, Hannon Art Works can create images that grow with your child. Stimulating the visual senses with creativity and imagination, color is used to complement the home's existing palette. Nurseries can be designed to incorporate bedding motifs or favorite storybook characters. As parents, coaches and educators, the Hannons have unique insight to a child's world and will develop concepts relative to their age-appropriate social or academic interests.
