Artist Profile: Galen Hafla
Hi, welcome to Hafla Eye, our developing family heritage of unique expression, inspiring vision, and creative thinking. Our footprint in the art world.
Lauren, Galen, and our son Gehrig, comprise the Hafla family here in Elko, Nevada. Lauren & Galen became residents of Elko in 1998 and were married in September 2005. Gehrig was born in April 2014. Our hobby of travel has allowed us to experience various cultures, to visit family and friends both near and far that ultimately creates the foundation of our family art, which has blossomed with Galen’s passion for photography.
Exhibiting artist, Galen Hafla, was born and raised in Miles City, Montana. Galen grew up in a family that possessed a love for the outdoors & great respect for wildlife: hunting on my Hafla grandparents’ ranch in Cohagen, Montana, fishing at my grandparent Beever’s (Mom's maiden name) cabin in central Montana - place called Checkerboard, and participating in organized sports such as baseball, basketball, swimming, & tennis formed the framework of a wonderful childhood.
The family is involved with Galen’s love for running, usually running a half marathon every 2 months or so, and with the obvious passion of photography which includes both landscapes and, more recently, urban shots.
We hope you enjoy our compositions! Galen, Lauren, & Gehrig
