About the artist and work

Hannah is an artist, printmaker and illustrator, born in Birmingham, UK. She studied Fine Art at Coventry University, gaining her bachelor’s degree in 2016. Her creative practice has undergone significant changes since graduating from university. What began as a fascination for real world urban architecture has morphed into a desire to create an imaginary world of architecture and nature. This change was propelled by the events of 2020 that required all of us to change how we live, and adapt to a new world. Using techniques in colour and composition she becomes the architect and creates scenes for the viewer to lose themselves in.

‘IN THIS CITY’ is a semi-surreal depiction of an alternate side to Birmingham. A constructed reality that transcends fixed space and time. The use of light and shade portrays a sense of lingering twilight, aiding the narrative of an otherworldly atmosphere. By combining architectural and figurative elements it represents a wider appreciation of the lesser known iconic ‘landmarks’ that make up the city; diverse cultures, music, housing, and the people.
