The Artist

Hannah graduated from Cambridge University
in 2006 having studied pre-clinical Veterinary
Medicine. After three years as a bronze sculptor
she joined the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst
and commissioned into the Army Air Corps.
Following a ground tour of Afghanistan with the
infantry she qualified as a Lynx helicopter pilot and
has served all over the world including Germany,
Canada and Kenya.

In 2015 Hannah was deployed to Kenya to
conduct medical evacuation duties. Often based in
austere locations in the remote northern deserts,
she flew multiple casualties with life-threatening
conditions to medical facilities in Nairobi. Having
experimented with painting whilst on standby
Hannah’s work quickly drew a following, and
since her return to the UK in 2016 Hannah has
featured on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year, in
the Financial Times “How To Spend It”, Mayfair
Times, Luxury London magazine, and was listed
as one of the top 10 “Women to Watch in the Arts”
by About Time magazine.

The Art

“I am, at heart,
a scientist.”

Since returning to the UK from Kenya in 2016
Hannah has developed her style and technique
using oil paints and palette knives. Her unique use
of horizontal and vertical strokes to break up her
paintings brings a geometric element to a subject
matter not usually associated with straight lines.
Hannah captures the energy and movement of
her subject with a bold use of impasto paint in
vibrant, often unnatural colours. She works quickly
to capture a likeness while the paint is still wet,
moving the medium across the canvas to create
the network of layers that are threaded through
her work.

“ My artistic process is
a head-first dive into
the unknown. Precision is
easy, but it has no soul.
I have to break with every
perfectionist bone in my
body to deliberately ruin
something I have taken hours
to achieve.

Create it, break it, fix
it, balance it - it is an
exhausting journey that I can
only dare embark on because
I know I will be saved by a
happy accident that science
could never have predicted.”

“It’s an age old puzzle - how
does a painter depict energy and
movement when there is only two-
dimensional stillness? I have
found the more I explore this
question the more the ideas come
spilling over.

In art there are no rules.
Animals are not grey and brown,
Natural forms can be married with
geometric shapes, fluid movement
can be depicted in harsh,
straight lines. There is no plan,
just an open-minded acceptance
that the finished piece will look
nothing like I intended.”
