Hanna was born in Stellenbosch, a small town nestled between the vineyards and the mountains of the Western Cape, South Africa. She spent a great deal of time filling sketchbooks with drawings while she lived in Colorado, London, and Paris, or travelling around Europe.

Since making her home in Biarritz, a beautiful town on the dramatic Atlantic coastline of South-Western France, Hanna has moved from sketchbooks to paint and canvas.

Her paintings are bright and colorful. She finds inspiration in her childhood memories, and her love of the ocean. She depicts everyday scenes with vivid colours, character and perspective.
