Hanlon Sculpture Studios handles many different types of projects, from simple busts to sophisticated plaza work.

In creating his work, Hanlon’s goal is to educate others about the subject and inspire them to achieve greatness. Hanlon’s work translates seamlessly across all genres from liturgical to civic, public safety, and athletics because of his desire to learn and create meaningful, thought provoking works of art.

Hanlon has been the subject of several news features, as well as a short documentary about his work created by Brad Nau.
