Hagerman Art has been online since 2001 to showcase the realistic landscape art work of William Hagerman. Today the site also features the impressionist art work of Byron, the artist's alter ego. Two styles, two signatures, one artist. William "Byron" Hagerman is pleased to assist individuals in acquiring art for their home or business, whether it be in a realistic or impressionistic style.
Hagerman became a professional artist at the age of 13, selling one of his
first paintings to a neighbor, then to another neighbor, school teachers,
a piano teacher and by the age of 15 was showing in an art gallery. Thirty
plus years later William has never put down the brush and continues to
paint beautiful landscape imagery that delights the senses.
In addition to his own personal studies, William has benefited from artists and non artists alike with several artists of distinction providing guidance early on in his artistic development such as: C.L. Curry, Dalhart Windberg, Robert Pummill and Gary Carter. William also acknowledges the late Tom Ryan for his critiques as well as Wilson Hurly for providing a bibliography of recommended books to further his study of art and the late Gary Griffin for his knowledge of art materials and his wife Judy for her trained artistic eye.
William also enjoys teaching and sharing his artistic knowledge
through art classes and workshops.
He resides in Midland, TX with his wife Rita.
Often our life seems to be grasped by some unseen force that seizes us and drags us along at unprecedented speeds. Our life's journey seems to be blurring by. However, patiently, yet with intense focus my artistic hand is slowly applying the brakes one brush stroke at a time. Full stop is achieved when a new painting inspired by creation is born.
"Art is the culmination of an artist's life experience transferred to canvas with paint and brush to be shared with others."
As humans we are made up of the elements of the earth, even the
pigments I use in my artwork are often of earthy origin. When we
experience the scenic outdoors, we feel drawn to it, nurtured by it, and
we seek its solace whenever we can. Our senses become engaged. We feel
alive, while savoring the slower pace in order to fully experience the
beauty around us!
The essence of my art work is to capture a moment in time and place and for the viewer to experience those same emotions and bring added beauty and refreshment into their life.
