Hello, and welcome!

 

I'm Hannah, a multidisciplinary artist situated in Oakville, Ontario. Thank you so much for stopping by and exploring my work.

Throughout my experience as an artist I've struggled a vast majority of the time with identity and finding my place in the 'art world'. My undergraduate studies in fine arts helped me explore new mediums that I never thought I would have the capacity or resources to experiment with; it was a vibrant five years of dabbling in sculpture, printmaking, performance art, picking up a plasma cutter for the first time and one class had me drawing with my feet. While I allowed myself to become a jack of all trades and wear many hats, I wanted to master one and fall in love with it.

 

It wasn't until the end of 2020 that I had been exposed to wood burning and finally decided to buy my first wood burning kit and a slab of wood.

Immediately I felt drawn to create designs that would flow with the wood's already existing movement in the grain. I asked friends for some suggestions on things to burn into the wood and my personal challenge was to incorporate all of these mismatched ideas into one cohesive design. To give some context, the suggestions involved a flamingo, trees, woodland creatures, bird feet, mushrooms, breasts, and many more inventive ideas. While it was a complete learning curve, the result was better than I had expected and I became completely enamoured with pyrography.

The support I have received on this journey has kept me inspired and moving forward, and I'm so thrilled I can share the things that make my heart happy with you all. I hope these creations can also bring you joy, or at least some curiosity into the world of pyrography.
