Hannah studied Art at the University of West of England, before deciding to work as a music photographer in London, where she was regularly published in music magazines, did commissioned portraits for rock bands and covered music festivals. She moved into painting in 2017 seeking greater artistic autonomy and an arena in which to be truly experimental.
With full emotional energy placed upon every canvas, Hannah’s abstract paintings explore the state of restlessness, chaos and chance that life represents, and the challenges of retaining a sense of one’s own capability and autonomy in the face of this.
With a process that is both intuitive and experimental, Hannah is free to explore the act of painting, creating absolutely in the moment. Each painting is borne from the previous and while it is not her specific purpose to pursue a signature style as she constantly evolves, it is clear to see her personal visual language extending through each canvas with recurring marks, symbols and colour palettes.
