Hannah Wilson's Practice

Hannah's intimate and illustrative portrayals of women, captured in myriad backgrounds and familiar situations, are imbued with humour and character. Hannah paints quickly and from their imagination rather than observation, using liberal and broad brushstrokes and block colours. Although minimal in detail, the bikini-clad characters have an expansive presence and possess the power to evoke strong responses in viewers.

Shows and Projects

Hannah has featured in numerous exhibitions across the UK. To name a few, they presented at the solo show I Don’t Dream Anymore at Big Shop Friday in (2020) and at a self-titled solo show with All Mouth Gallery (2021). Recent group shows include Hope this finds you well, Five Hides and Nice Guys Live Forever, and Be Bold For Change as a part of International Women’s Day. They have also participated in Arts For Health workshops and exhibitions in Milton Keynes University Hospital.
