Hannah Giffard is a BAFTA winning East Anglian artist who paints in oils in an original and distinctive style. Her paintings feature animals which are both realistic and symbolic. The landscapes reflect the changing seasons. Her subjects range from boxing hares in midwinter to stags against stormy grey skies. Hannah says: "I love the East Anglian landscape with its huge skies and empty space. I try to evoke this with rounded horizons to create a feeling of space. This style, like so many other things in life, happened by happy accident."
Born in London, Hannah is the daughter of two artists, who met at the Slade School of Art. Her grandparents lived in the same village in Norfolk where Hannah lives now, with two sheep roaming around her studio. Hannah's work can be found in collections around the world. She exhibits regularly in the Red Dot Gallery in Holt, North Norfolk and the Southwold Gallery in Suffolk. She sells signed, limited edition giclee prints online.
Hannah also works on individual commissions:
"I love working with my client to create something very personal. I try to capture a moment in time because life, homes and animals are ever-changing. I am not interested in literal translatiion but try to evoke the atmosphere of the place and tell a story in paint.''
