Hanna's Story

Pain has a way of giving every aspect of life a hard edge. Everything feels cold, distant and difficult. For Hanna, this began with a hip injury when she was just six years old, making chronic pain a lasting fixture in her life.

Her piece uses soft shapes, a flowing sense of motion and calming colours to capture the intangible feeling of relief. For Hanna, this escape from pain give her the freedom to be present in her life and enjoy the peace and creativity that comes with clarity. Her work is a striking reminder of the importance of health and the intextricable link between body and mind.
