“Spontaneously out in nature, found items, leaves, flowers, shells come together as a divine co creation. Awareness revealing itself. I feel that life happens through us, as we release limiting beliefs and realise our inherent connection with and as all that is, alignment, peace, compassion and joy effortlessly radiates through. I enjoy that the artworks take form, express as awareness then are taken back by the winds of change, transient faces realised as the unchanging. The nature art series is called ‘Realising permanence through impermanence’, when all is removed what remains..?” Hannah speaking of her nature art series.
In her tender yet dynamic mixed media portraiture Hannah offers the spectator a sense of authentic connection and uplift. Hannah’s inspiring practice ranges from temporary nature portraits, mixed media paintings and sculpture.
Hannah’s unique work is held in many private and public collections, from Hawaii, The New Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and London. Hannah’s work has been exhibited internationally and has won many distinguished prizes, she also represents the UK in several International Artists conferences, several times in Morocco. Hannah has been awarded several public commission projects such as with Commissions East, Environmental Arts in hospitals, a sculpture trail for Break charity and an interactive nature art sculpture trail in collaboration with a local French government at a protected waterfall site in Mortain, France.
Trained in London, Hannah is also a qualified spiritual healer, founder of The Free Spirit Network and mother to four, she works between her studio in France and the UK. For many years Hannah has held Free Spirit Sessions for communities offering neutral space in nature for groups to explore creativity and wellbeing through deepening their connection with their natural surroundings, each other and themselves.
