Through the Zambia National Arts Council Hannah’s work was featured in well recognized showcases that include the ‘International Exhibition for Women’ entitled, “Women beyond borders”, the Zambian National Arts Council’s annual exhibition in 2000 and 2001, and several Alliance Francaise Cultural exhibitions.
In 2003, Hannah relocated to the UK and has successfully held two solo exhibitions and participated several group exhibitions.
Hannah’s African heritage to is evident in her works through the use of vibrant earthy colours. Her works have exciting and unique themes that depict her view of life, social interactions and spirituality. Also notable is her use of abstracted stick figures that she uses to capture human interaction in fluid motion. Over the past few years, Hannah has become increasingly passionate about recording Black (African/Caribbean) lifestyle and culture through her works as a tool for cultural preservation and historical recording.
