Hannahis an artist-maker, combining her skills as both a sculptor and a furniture maker/restorer to make work which re-imagines and physically reshapes functional, everyday objects – frequently, but not exclusively, furniture. These re-shapings and deliberately visible ‘repairs’ bring the objects to life and always re-contextualise them, inviting the viewer to ‘read’ them in a new way, both as themselves and metaphorically. Her practice develops the argument that the ‘mend’, especially if disruptive of a common sense or expected narrative, will function as a queering tool within sculpture and drawing.
 
Alongside making her own work, She has built a strong track record of working imaginatively and empathetically within and alongside communities as artist in residence, mentor and teacher.
