Somer Hahm is a local artist, living and making art in Fairbanks since 2005. She received a Master’s degree in Fine Arts from University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2008. During her time at UAF, she instructed a variety of beginning painting and drawing courses, and gained experience teaching young people at the Summer Visual Arts Academy.
Her passion for art led her to working for many years as a gallery assistant at Well Street Art Company, where she is currently represented. Somer has a robust involvement in the arts community in Fairbanks. She has worked directly with the Fine Arts Collections Curator at the Museum of the North, been a docent for the Rose Berry Art Gallery, and spent countless hours at Fairbanks Arts Association helping to install rotating exhibits.
These days, Somer is raising her two little ones, building a house with her husband, picking blueberries and mushrooms, and finding time to draw and paint somewhere in between.
