Louisiana native Hannah Lane earned her BFA from the Savannah College of Art & Design. 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.
Hannah Lane stared collecting and working with papers while living in Florence, Italy in 2012. She now pigments Japanese and patterend papers with ink to further transform them before layering with pastels and acrylic paint. In her mixed media paintings, the subject is up close and personal, almost to the point of being exposed. HannahLane 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.
