A mural done in lipstick on Hannah Hollister Ingmire's parents' bedroom walls (not well received!) started her artistic career when she was two. At five years old, Ingmire's painting of a little tired train chugging up a hill was selected for an exhibit of children's art work at the Philadelphia Art Museum. Painting was always her favorite thing to do and when in sixth grade, Ingmire started private art lessons with Fritzi Morrison, of the American Watercolor Society, and continued with her until college. Ingmire received a BFA in painting at Grinnell College in 1966 and did graduate work in Fine Arts at the University of Iowa.
Hannah Hollister Ingmire's professional life has been focused on making and showing art. The artist's work has been exhibited in galleries and juried art festivals across the nation in Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, New Mexico, Idaho, Florida, and Missouri. Ingmire's work can be found in banks, hospitals, libraries, and many private homes.
Currently, Ingmire resides in Columbia, Missouri. She is a member of the Columbia Art League and has a studio at Orr Street Studios where she exhibits work and teaches adults. Ingmire has taught for over thirty years because she loves bringing out the creativity in her students.
Ingmire loves the process of creating and misses it when a day goes by in which she doesn't pick up a brush. Within the last ten years, the artist has been experimenting with paint, collage, and abstraction. Ingmire's paintings of trees often contain actual bark. A shell painting, created after a visit to Cape Cod, features real shells and sand from the beach. Ingmire incorporates various mediums in her work to preserve the items. The artist also creates pieces that incorporate philosophies and themes from books. While in college in the sixties, abstraction was the "thing" and Ingmire has learned to embrace a color and form just for the sake of its own beauty. Sometimes Ingmire creates a piece by letting the paint direct her and other times objects, such as pebbles, shells, or grass, inspire her to create.
Ingmire hopes that people viewing her art will experience a spark of something that touches them, a bond between viewer and artist.
