Jeremy Hamann Art

Artist Statement - “I make art to connect to my inner child and to help others connect to their inner child. I make art that has a child-like simplicity with brightness and shape. I would never tell an audience what to feel but I hope when people look at my art feel the happiness and safety due to all children and all people everywhere.”

Check out local Creatives showcasing and selling their work at local businesses throughout Downtown Longmont!
