“Mother and Child” Painting by Hannah Dansie in a folk art inspired style depicting a “devil” mother cradling her child with floral motifs surrounding.

Hannah Dansie’s work draws from influences derived from iconoclasm, mythology, and the natural environment. Using familiar imagery and symbolism her images try to illustrate the connections that go unseen between ourselves and the natural world, while creating a sense of nostalgia for the dreamlike world of fairytales and folklore. All works are created in acrylic, ink, and gouache.

Hannah Dansie was born and raised near the redwoods and beaches of Northern California. She studied fine art at Central Saint Martin’s University in London, England, where she graduated with a BFA Honors degree in 2004. She works and resides in a small barn apartment in Madison County, NC with her loving husband Greg, beloved dog and best friend Greta, and a sweet but lazy three legged cat. She’s expecting her first child in April 2019.

Her work has been shown in Asheville at The Satellite Gallery, The Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro NC, The Red Truck Gallery in New Orleans LA, The Convent Philly in Philadelphia PA, and The Gristle Gallery in Brooklyn NY. You can find a large collection of her prints and originals on permanent display at The Horse + Hero in Asheville, NC. You may also purchase her artwork here and on Etsy.
