Louisiana native, Hannah Lane, earned her BFA from the Savannah College of Art & Design and has been painting professionally for 10 years. During periods of extensive travel in her 20s, Hannah immersed herself in rich cultures, color, texture and nature. She spent time living and painting in Italy and New Orleans before settling in Nashville, Tennessee.
A colorist at heart, Hannah Lane started collecting and working with papers while living in Florence, Italy in 2012. She now pigments Japanese and patterned papers with acrylic paint to further transform them before layering with pastels and water based paint. In her mixed media paintings, the subject is up close and personal, almost to the point of exposed. Hannah Lane uses illustrative line work and bursts of color as an emotional response to the forms she holds dear. The wildlife and nature of Louisiana and now Tennessee have captured a long standing space in her work. Lane’s use of color and fluid sensibility tie each body of work together from the Artichoke and Blossom Collection to the Louisiana Crowd Series.
