Dick Hancock was born in Tacoma, Washington. He lives with his wife, Gloria near the rural town of Sequim. It is nestled in the rain shadow of the beautiful Olympic Mountains. He is the father of six children, grandpa to six, and great papa to 8 babies.
Quote from artist Greg Beecham, “As a fellow artist, I can see in Dicks work, the intimate knowledge and relationship with his subject matter, as well as compositional skill and technical mastery of his medium”
