Hannah is an emerging fine artist, inspired especially by the equine form. Her paintings in oils or gouache, and drawings in charcoal, pencils and ink capture the spirit of the horse and other subjects. Simple line drawings, or dramatic paintings; the heart of her work is animal or human form. A passion for horses from an early age has helped to hone a deeper understanding of this subject in particular and she portrays them with accuracy and movement. She has limited formal training, discovering as she works how to develop her skills, working with thin glazes of oil and bold strokes of charcoal, always focusing on the draughtmanship.
Living in rural Wiltshire, she also works on drawing domestic and wild animals in the countryside, including chickens, dogs and hounds on the hunting field. Working from life where possible, current projects include being part of the Artist in Residence scheme at Wincanton Racecourse, where she has been commissioned by the Jockey Club racecourse to depict the winners of the four feature races in oil sketches on the racecard for the connections. She is currently working on private portrait commissions of animals, from the new studio deep in the countryside, looking out over the Nadder Valley. This move is inspiring new work, from the surrounding landscape and changing seasons.
