Hannah Bligh was born and raised by a family of artists. Growing up you could find Hannah in her mother’s studio (the future Alla Prima) soaking in as much technical knowledge as she could muster. She followed this passion for art to the University of Texas at Austin where she received her BFA in Studio Art. Her studies included lithography, woodblock printing, ceramics, sculpture, art theory, and painting. Hannah’s love of painting is an unbridled one which has pushed her towards large format works that are filled with technical precision and a meticulous attention to color and color mixing. She is inspired by Matisse’s bright colors and expressive figures, but has her head stuck in the clouds of April Gornik’s landscape paintings.
