Hannah Veiga is a Canadian multidisciplinary artist and a graduate of the University of Waterloo Honours Fine Arts program with Intensive Studio Specialization. She works in various methods of making but is primarily interested in the processes of pyrography, printmaking and sculpture with metal, wire and clay.
In her sculpture work she utilizes materials of metal, copper leaf, wire and clay to create fungal forms, mimicking growth and implying life in strange places. Her work explores fungi's ability to grow and thrive in changing and sometimes unexpected environments, and she is highly interested in the cycles of life, death, decay and growth.
Recently she has dived into the medium of pyrography, otherwise known as wood-burning. She is fascinated by the movement that occurs organically in the wood grain and tends to create designs that flow with the existing patterns that nature has already drawn out.
