Now Showing:

"View from My South Dakota Home"

by Mickie Hansen

This show will run through November 12, 2017.


Mickie Louise Bierman Hansen has been drawing, painting, and ink drawing her whole life as far back as she can remember.

Born in 1938 to the son of a German homesteader and a Texas mother, she has had many interests as a gardener, sign painter, and designer of sweatshirts and applique designs. She has sold many of these designs in her clothing store and at art craft shows. She has also made ink drawings for a phonics program that was taught in schools worldwide.

Mickie raised three sons and did bookkeeping in her husband Verne’s office. She has also designed, organized and planted an ornamental garden in the city park in Faulkton. She has also designed and planted all kinds of bushes, perennials, and annual flowers in her own yard making it a show place.

Most of her paintings are of real locations, drawn or painted on site, and of real people from the Faulkton area.
Her motto is: “Start with a realistic drawing, but after that it’s all mine.”

Mickie is now exhibiting paintings and ink drawings at the Dacotah Prairie Museum in Aberdeen, SD, with an opening reception on Saturday, September 9, 2017.
She will be on hand to greet visitors from 1 to 4pm.

Museum gallery hours: Tuesday - Friday, 9am to 5pm, Saturday - Sunday, 1pm to 4pm.
