Hannah paints lively, colourful cityscapes, bold landmarks and contemporary deckchair / ski scenes on canvas. Her aim is to make people smile with her work, to transport them into the scene and its atmosphere. “People have described my work as ‘happy art’ and I like that, I think if you are going to invest in a painting and hang it on your wall it should make you feel good every time you walk into the room.”

Mixed media using resin and crafted embellishments to create 3D wall art. ‘I discovered that my satisfaction was not just about producing real life art scenes, but getting involved in the creativity of producing art pieces that invoke emotions, interest and intrigue. Taking inspiration from nature, indulging in what I love and hopefully portraying that passion to others’.

My aim as a visual artist is to connect with artistic tradition in a contemporary way; my conceptual approach leads me to work in a variety of materials, the process is fundamental to outcome; often working in a series. Whilst it is difficult to ascribe my work to a particular style it is generally drawn on ideas of our universal landscape, my concerns for the environment, the complexities and vagaries of the human condition, all of which continue to challenge and inspire; the work is informed by and through collective memories, drawings, photographs, images from newspaper articles that resonate and inform my interests, largely the humanitarian crisis and the devastating effect on humans when displaced; the plight of the homeless now being a global issue.

All my work is informed by my own photography, the starting point for the creation of work that enhances, reinterprets and intensifies the piece to the point of a vibrant photorealism. Capturing landscapes, with all their details, depth and subtleties, as well highlighting the nuances and effects of the prevailing light, is my driving force. My personally-developed and unique technique involves drawing, by hand, up to tens of thousands of triangles, each individually shaped, placed and coloured, until the effect I wish to reach is obtained. This is actioned with the use of a stylus and electronic tablet. As two dimensional digital art, it follows that all work is printed, but is only issued as limited edition, archival quality giclée prints, using the highest quality, non-fade, natural pigments to ensure clarity and accurate colour.

My work always depicts the natural world and I enjoy drawing animals on paper using different mediums and adding as much detail as possible mainly around the eyes. I don`t have a plan when I start a picture unless its a commission then the client will depict the picture, I have many ideas that I would like to try but not all are successful. Sometimes I will start with a very loose piece with lots of movement using different materials to create a lively piece and I also work on very delicate close picture using pencil and pastel to add detail. When working in inks I use a printing technique I was taught back at University this involves using different items to print with plastic bags and aprons give a wonderful texture to the work and every print is unique. I want my work to communicate my love for the natural world and how we all play our part in the cycle of life, In the future I want to work using different mediums and materials making my work more textured mixing mediums and giving my work a more textured look and feel but still working on the theme of the natural world.

I am an oil painter based in West Sussex. I paint a wide range of subjects from contemporary landscapes which capture light, colour and texture to life studies, largely of people, which exhibit a graphic quality, focusing on tone and composition. I often work from black and white historic photographs, capturing the nostalgia of the time but in a contemporary style and limited colour palette. I have recently painted old livestock markets and other English countryside subjects including herds of cows and hounds. I have exhibited in Sussex, Berkshire, Kent and at the Mall Galleries, London.

Colour, line and form is my creative language to express the images, shapes and patterns of the Suffolk coast local to me. My compositions are found from photographing and recording my journeys of the skylines and woodlands to the expanse of the meeting edge of sea, sky, beach and heath.

Working in figurative sculpture allows me to challenge the preconception of figurative art while continuing my belief in the use of recycled materials and its inherent methodology. My practise explores definitive states from tragic and haunting to ethereal and dynamic. One of the lessons of my life has been that its transitions can illustrate to me the inconstant energy that is living in today’s often brutal society. The poses of my sculptures commenting on my own experiences using human body language. Eighty percept of all one to one communication is through body language. I find myself particularly drawn to the human form in movement. The shapes created by frozen moments in time appeal to the graphic nature of my designs. I like my sculptures to be initially aesthetic, but then the viewer discovers the layers of meaning as they delve deeper into my ideas. The viewer’s own experiences become integral to the perception of my practise.
