Hannah Sessions owns a farm and cheese business (Blue Ledge Farm) with her husband, Greg Bernhardt. The animals that she paints are not only lovely specimens and interesting compositions, but her friends and her livelihood!  She says, "I hope that my work bears witness to the simplicity and beauty present all around us all the time: in sunlight caressing a hen, in the long shadows and pink sky of afternoon, in the pattern of freshly cut grass across a field, through the playful gaze of goats and the skeptical glance of chickens. We are witness to these wonders every day".
