Hannah’s main interest lies in exploring and capturing the subtle yet complex details of life through the technique of batik, portraying moments and locations which have become distorted as memories, complimenting the scenes with a vibrant, dream-like quality. In previous work, Hannah created tactile, 'map-like' paintings which were made in response to her yearn to be in certain locations that summon feelings of awe and exhilaration, echoing the powerful qualities of nature. In Hannah’s recent work, the curiosity and wonder felt when admiring the grandeur of life and nature is referenced by the oversized suns and moons which watchfully hover over tranquil scenes. These pieces, conceived using wax, dye and cotton, create soft yet vivid wall hangings, capturing peaceful locations which are warped by lively colour. Inspiration arrives in the form of poignant scenes, such as the warm afternoon light illuminating a leafy canopy or the stillness of a Moroccan courtyard in the heat of the day.
