Hannah Collins is a self taught contemporary artist. Born in Dorset in the 80’s, she lives with her family on the Jurassic coast in Weymouth, UK.
Hannah’s art has evolved since she began her painting journey in 2015, but a reoccurring theme she particularly enjoys exploring are the contrasts between light/dark and smooth/texture. Often you will see where she combines all of those elements to create strikingly beautiful moody pieces. She also likes to leave her work open to interpretation, letting the viewer come to their own conclusion about what they see and feel in her work.
She draws inspiration from many sources, but living on the coast has the most influence of all. She especially loves the sea and this theme can be seen across her works. From the shapes in her abstract pieces to her more recent realistic seascapes.
In 2017 Hannah took part in SAW, Somerset Art Weeks, where she exhibited her work alongside five other talented artists.
Sarah Beeny’s “Renovate don’t relocate” on RealityTV channel featured a few of her pieces in Series 1 episode 3.
The Dorset Echo, a local newspaper, did an article on Dorset’s biggest social media profiles, Hannah was featured among them.
In 2021 Hannah had the great honour of having an article written about her for Dorset Live. It talks about her inspirations and gives an insight into who she is as a person.
Many of Hannah’s works have found homes world wide. USA, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia, to name but a few.
Many of these have been commission pieces. If this is something that interests you, please take a look at her commissions page.
