grew up in London, Ohio in an unfinished American Foursquare house with exposed stud walls, plywood floors and unpainted drywall. The interior was equally raw and refined, revealing a logic of materials and wood frame construction that continues to inform her interests to this day. Her formal experimentation with materials and installations began with a degree in Sculpture from The Ohio State University and continued in Fiber and Material Studies at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she earned her MFA.Ongoing teaching in higher-ed, workshops, and collaborations within her creative community disposes Hannah to a theoretically engaged practice, deeply invested in learning and sharing knowledge about materials. In 2012, Hannah developed the inaugural wood and metal shops at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago where she also designed/fabricated for Logan Exhibitions and co-created workshops with Arts and Public Life. She has been an artist in residence at the Chicago Artist Coalition, Vermont Studio Center, 8550 Ohio, The Center for Land Use Interpretation, ACRE, and Umoja Center for the Arts in Arusha Tanzania. Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally at venues such as The Cultural Center in Arusha Tanzania, The Banff Centre, 4th Ward Project Space, Logan Exhibitions, Chicago Artist Coalition, Riverside Art Center, Flatland Gallery, and DEMO Projects. These experiences have fostered work that varies in scale, often taking the form of architectural installation, sculpture, sound, and the collaborative organization of conversations and events.
