Hi, I'm Hanna!
I'm so excited to share my creations with you! Thank you for stopping by to take a look. It's been a dream of mine since I was a young girl to share my art. Painting to me is a therapeutic and spiritual process of coming home to myself and the deepest parts of my inner world. It's my way of connecting with nature and my highest self, getting back to my own pure state within.
I mostly paint outside, surrounded by Mother Earth and all of her blessings. Many of my paintings are either created in or inspired by the quietness and vastness of the Joshua Tree desert. One of my favorite rituals is to take hikes and notice all the details around me. I collect treasures along the way including feathers, leaves, tree bark, flowers, twigs and seeds. I alchemize these organic elements by placing them amongst the colorful paint. Look closely at the unique textures of these earthy details!
Before I start the process of painting, I create a ceremony with lavender or sage to clear my energy and the energy around the canvas to allow spirit to come through. Each piece is a spontaneous moment; there's no plan ahead of time. Just me, the paint, the canvas, and the moment. It’s a pure expression and cannot be recaptured or recreated ever again.
This body of work is a play between painful and joyous aspects of human relationships and my deep love for and connection to Mother Nature and all of her gifts. I try to remember myself as part of her, just as sacred and worthy of respect.
I experience Hanna’s work as raw and intimate. Her pieces offer space for one to enjoy and revel in an authentic interpretation that is personal and full. Her paintings flow energetically and I experience them as life abound on the wood and the canvas. Her use of natural materials, along with the paint and resin offers a depth of color that is magical and earthly grounding. I love exploring the imagery in each piece.
The "All A dream" painting has brought so much warmth to our home. Living In Seattle, I often miss the beautiful sunsets and colors at the beach that I saw when living I LA. I feel like I get to have a small piece of California in my living room!
