Ever since she was a kid, Hannah loved art and loved making art. It wasn’t until High School when she really devoted herself to her art.

“My mom was very artistic so there was always that vibe in the house.” She says.

When I asked her, “Why do you do art?” She states, “I just fucking do it, I just do it. I like it. That’s it.”

Hannah has experimented with most mediums, but she typically enjoys painting with oil the most and experimenting with mixed media and found objects.

“You have more room to play with when messing with oil since it takes longer to dry. There’s space to try different styles, and since I really like impressionist and fauvist painting, you can choose how well you want to blend everything or choose to have the brush strokes to be very thick and obvious.”

Though Hannah does not want to pursue art as a career, she wants to keep it as a hobby she continues to practice.

“I like to be in complete control of my art.” She states. “Once there’s a deadline or a ‘grade’ put on a piece, it only brings me stress instead of joy and I don’t want that to happen with something I love.”
