A. M. Hasan

I paint to “share” my talents with others and to Praise and Thank The One Who gave them to me. The purpose of my art is not to try to imitate The Creator’s work. I want my paintings to serve as a reminder to those of us who spend a large portion of our life inside our “man-made” environments of the Beauty and Majesty of His Creation that Sustains us.
My name is Helen M. Stackhouse, a.k.a. Amatullah M. Hassan. I live in Nashville, Tennessee. My artistic talents surfaced in preschool. After graduating from high school, I received some formal art training at the University of Tennessee. During the 70’s I exhibited at the Parthenon Gallery in Centennial Park , Vanderbilt University’s Italian Street Fair and other art venues. I worked for 10 yrs. as a Draftsman for the TN DOT. While raising five children, working full-tine, and pursuing an Associates degree in Architectural Engineering at night, I did not have the peace of mind or energy to paint. In the late 90’s I was forced to retire due to illness. With encouragement from my family and friends I decided to start painting again.
I moved to Panama City, FL in 2001. I was a member of the Panama City Artist for several years. My Art has been exhibited at the 9/11 Exhibit and the PCA Exhibit at the Marina Civic Center, The Panama City Artist Show and Sale at the Visual Arts Center, The St. Andrews Marina, The Sherman Archaid, the Nature’s Gallery event, The Museum of Man In The Sea, St. Andrews State Park Visitor’s Center, The Indian Summer Festival, the Lynn Haven Taco Bell the Health Department, the County Government Building and numerous events and exhibits in the Panama City area. My mediums of choice are Acrylic, Oil and Watercolor. I also design Wearable Art and Craft items. In 2007 I received a VSA Arts of Florida grant to teach disabled children.
I was a member of AARP Chapter 1315, the Bay County Islamic Society and I majored in Drafting and Architectural Design at Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City FL.
I am married and have a large extended family in Tennessee. My husband and I moved back to Nashville summer of 2012. Spring of 2013 I decided to study private Real Estate Investing to pay for major renovations to my 94yr. old Victorian style home. I continued my artistic endeavors by making Art using recycled materials and donating it to fundraisers for “TurnUpGreen” a recycle/reuse store. I have also exhibited in the “Untitled” artist organization's Pop-Up Art exhibits. I am currently exhibiting at Poverty and the Arts Gallery during the first Saturday “Art Crawl” in downtown Nashville.
