Building Q – The West Shed – Unit 1
Hannah is an artist, illustrator, and educator working in a variety of media from cut paper to watercolor field sketches to large scale cut steel installations.
Her TwispWorks studio is a base for these diverse art projects as well as a place to share her enthusiasm for art inspired by the natural world with visitors and collaborators alike.
“When I started, art was fit in around the edges of a life of teaching and adventures on land and sea. An acrobatics class in Santiago, landscape watercolors in Taos, rigging in Port Townsend, I studied whatever a place had to teach me. Now I strive to use that diverse background to collaborate across disciplines, seeking out projects that give me the opportunity to illustrate important ecological stories, challenge me to compellingly depict subjects and ideas, and use education to foster stewardship and a sense of place.”
This work comes to life through children’s books, teaching residencies, science outreach, cross- pollinator expeditions, and community focused public art projects. Hannah is also the host and facilitator of the Singla Creative Residency on Arnøya Island, Norway.
