Hannah Ivory Baker
Hannah is a Landscape artist based in London. She paints vivid memories of the sea and the surrounding landscapes and takes the south coast as a main point of inspiration for her work. Since graduating in 1998, he has been represented by galleries in London, Australia and Germany.
Hannah’s work is inspired by the natural world; the rugged Cornish coast to the relative serenity of the Somerset levels, all of which provide a wealth of artistic opportunity, creative interpretation and expression.
Each of her pieces derives from a plein air sketch done in oil, charcoal or mixed media that aims to record basic shape, tone, light and any striking features of landscape as well as including additional notes on time of day, weather and anything else that may be relevant. These sketches are always the starting point for larger studio work.
Each work aims to evoke a sense of place, whilst allowing plenty of room for personal interpretation.
