'Creativity connects with who I really am and who I want to be'.
Hannah is an artist, whose creative practice is rooted in her own life experiences and vulnerability. With her work centering on identity, conformity, motherhood and the fragility of human nature; she tells her own stories and encourages others to tell theirs. Her emotive work creates opportunities to develop strong connections and conversations.
Hannah’s practice began as a printmaker, focusing on nature’s tiny details, and moving towards becoming a professional fine artist, has allowed her to use her work to convey her deep thinking and intellectual processes.
Hannah is a reflective practitioner and uses numerous mediums to share her thinking. She works for the most part intuitively, select things that she feels at the time, considering the purpose after the work is completed. For example; using paint, ink, text, stitch and collage to create pieces that show fragility and rawness.
Hannah exhibits her work regularly, and engages in open studios within Ryedale and North Yorkshire, where she lives. Working with others is central to the work, as well as sharing her own self-development, as a woman.
Her current work is a self-reflective study, focused on the loss of self and repair, titled ‘Finding Myself Through Brokenness’.
