Featured Artist

Jeff Hanson is a philanthropic artist from Overland Park, Kansas. Jeff is visually impaired from an optic nerve tumor (he nick-named CLOD) associated with a genetic condition called neurofibromatosis. The tumor caused severe vision loss in 2005, requiring chemotherapy and radiation. Despite his low vision, Jeff sees well enough to continue creating brilliant artwork—a “sight for sore eyes,” he calls it.

As a response to adversity, Jeff chose to focus on what he can do rather than what he can’t do. Jeff can’t drive a car but he can effortlessly apply broad strokes of vibrant colors to a canvas in what has become an unmistakable signature style.

Life according to Jeffrey Owen Hanson is about “lessons learned.” Live life with a purpose. Don’t let your CLOD define you. Generosity begets generosity. Be passionate in everything you do.

A rich spirit of philanthropy is woven throughout Jeff’s remarkable story. He has painted and donated more than one million dollars in acrylic canvases to over 100 charities worldwide since 2006. The Association of Fundraising Professionals recognized Jeff’s efforts by naming him “Young Philanthropist of the Year.” Jeff’s chosen path of philanthropy marked a major milestone at age 19: his artwork generated $1 million for charity in the seven short years since he began painting. It’s a campaign he dubbed “ONE MILLION BY 20!” To date, Jeff has now given more than two million dollars to charity.

The list of awards and accolades given to such a young artist, philanthropist and entrepreneur resonate with Jeff’s mission of compassion. Jeff was a PEOPLE Magazine “Hero Among Us” and appeared on CNN’s “Impact Your World.” Huffington Post readers voted Jeff “Top Kid Making a Difference.” Jeff was one of 10 nationwide to receive Prudential’s prestigious National “Spirit of Community” Award. For an artist with limited vision, Jeff Hanson is an invincible visionary who lives in a purple-driven, joyous world. His talent and gentle, humble nature fuel a fierce philanthropic and entrepreneurial life-spirit, helping to change the world one painting at a time.

Join the FirstHealth Foundation for an evening with Jeffrey Hanson on Friday, September 30 at the Grand Ballroom, Carolina Hotel, benefiting the Foundation's Cancer CARE Fund and Clara's House. For more information on the event in Pinehurst, please call the Foundation of FirstHealth at (910) 695-7500.
