Hannah Thomas’s Early Career
Hannah attended the University of the West of England in Bristol, graduating with a BA Hons in Art and Visual Culture in 2000. Following this, she spent ten years working as a photographer, primarily within the music sector, in East London. In 2017, Hannah took a step back from photography and chose to pick up her paintbrush. Eager to find a form of artistic expression that allows for greater creative autonomy, she moved towards more visceral and cathartic artistic projects. Her current abstract paintings present spiralling motifs and evocative shapes, conjuring an emotional and highly personal topography.
Awards and Exhibitions
She has been selected for several online exhibitions over the past eighteen months, including a solo exhibition with Albe Art Gallery. She was also a finalist in the London International Creative Competition, the Emerging Artist Award with Creates Gallery, and shortlisted for last year’s Visual Art Open Competition. Hannah also took part in the group show, Emerge - See|Me: New York, (Finalist Exhibition) at Gallery New York, NYC, April 2022, and her solo show, Rebel Visions, at the Green Rooms Hotel, London, 2019.
